Walk to School Day success

Andrea Smithson

Walk to School Day was a great success for Mount Lockyer Primary School - not only did we dodge the rain, we had an amazing turnout for the group walk and family breakfast! More than 100 students and around 20 staff and family members walked as a group from the local shopping centre - a brisk 2km walk to get warmed up on this chilly morning.

That group joined others who had walked from home in the hall for a Walk to School Day breakfast, which was made possible through a grant from Communities for Children. There was lots of yummy and healthy food to keep everyone going for the rest of the day.

A big thanks to all the students, families and staff who walked today, and to the Your Move student team who did a great job in helping with the breakfast.

With a spread like that put on I'm not surprised you got so many out to walk in the (potential) rain. Well done! Apart from the 40 points you got for your event, I have also given you a bonus 5 for sharing some participation numbers.

Well done Mt Lockyer PS! Warm jackets a must for the walk on Friday with the chilly conditions but good to see all the motivated students, parents and staff. I agree with James that the walk was worth it for the breakfast on offer!
