The weather gods were smiling last Friday as the students from Mount Lockyer Primary School participated in the National Ride2School Day event. Normally battling torrential rain and gale force winds, students were instead greeted by glorious sunshine and it showed, with over a third of students travelling to school by bike, scooter, ripstick, skateboard or simpy powered by feet!
Year 6 teacher, Ms Sayers, organised the amazing Student Leadership team to greet participants at the school gate with stickers, a raffle ticket and words of encouragement for all those that chose an active form of transport.
The schools’ brand new bike enclosure was full to the brim and there was a buzz of excitement as students clutched their raffle tickets and eagerly awaited the prize draw. Three prizes were awarded across the junior, middle and senior year groups with the lucky winners receiving an awesome Your Move prize pack.
Covid-19 has brought us periods of isolation and quarantine so it has never been more important to encourage active movement, not only to benefit physical health but also mental health. As restrictions begin to ease, the Your Move Champions at Mount Lockyer Primary are looking forward to holding more active transport activities in the near future.
