National Ride2School Day at Rostrata

Samantha Butler
Rostrata Primary School

WELL DONE and THANK YOU to those students and their families who walked, rode or scooted to school on National Ride2School Day.

Did you know almost half of our school ditched the car for the day and either walked, rode or scooted to school!

We had siblings in prams, dogs, mums, dads, grandparents and carers accompany our students on this great day.

We gave out 404 raffle tickets to students who took part and you can flick through the photos to see who the winners from each year group were. Thanks to our commitment to the ‘Your Move’ program, where we encourage you to choose other ways to get to school, every day of the school year, we had some fabulous prize packs for our winners.

Did you know, students who get active on the way to school contribute to their minimum physical activity level of 60 minutes per day. Research also says, they are also more focused and ready to learn compared to those who are driven to school.
