Students who rode or walked to school over the last two weeks of term had their names put in a prize draw to win vouchers to Icky Finks and Orana Cinemas. There were six small prizes, plus a grand prize of a cinema voucher for two children and one adult including refreshments.

Mr Faulkner was impressed that some students walked or rode almost every day, even in the middle of winter! We were very glad to see the grand prize go to one such student.

The first prize draw took place at an assembly early on in the two weeks which promoted the competition and encouraged more students to join in. The final draw was made on the last day of term, when the bike racks showed that several hardy students had ridden to school despite plenty of rain that day!

Great to see your students riding in the winter weather to take part in this two week challenge. Mt Lockyer might like to check out the 'Make Your Move Week' competitions that have been happening in the Town of Victoria Park at Ursula Frayne Catholic College and Victoria Park Primary School. 25 YM Monsters were placed around local streets for a week long challenge encouraging students to be active every day of the week. Great prizes too with the school holidays on the horizon! Well done!!
