Despite the constant drizzle, 49 brave Mount Lockyer Primary School students and teaching staff made the 2.2km walk from Coles Orana to school on Friday 14 May to participate in Walk Safely to School Day. The fresh conditions were no deterrent for many other enthusiastic students who also walked from home, rode their bikes, or walked part way to enjoy the benefits of fresh air and exercise. The participants were greeted at school by Your Move champions Jack and Lilly, and extra helpers Chloe and Stella, where they were entered into a draw to win a Your Move prize pack. The lucky winners were Zethrow (Room 21), Abigail (Room 6) and Caiden (Room 23).
Congratulations to the winners and to all the students who participated on the day. A huge thanks to the dedicated teaching staff for coordinating and supervising the Walk to School event, and also to the wonderful parents that supported the day by encouraging and assisting the children to participate. Not only did students arrive alert and ready to start the day, it also reduced traffic congestion around the school. Well done to all!
