Active Travel days at Scarborough Primary kicked off on the 3rd of November and is becoming a regular habit. Each Tuesday and Friday since week 4, we record the number of walkers, bikers, scooters and skateboarders including our "park and walk" families. They are the drivers who park at the local playground and walk about 200m to the school gate. In spite of the recent wet and windy weather previous Tuesday, it did not deter some of our students from riding or walking to and from school!
Our team of four students are presently designing posters to place around the school to promote active travel, particularly on the allocated active travel days, as well as, giving a reminder to everyone to 'keep moving through active transport' on other days. As the warmer weather moves in, we definitely notice an increase in our Active Travel at our school. Some of the Kindy children have expressed their active ways of getting to school through art. It's wonderful to see our younger students eagerly participating in this program.
