Ride2School Day 2020

Valerie Thompson

Our school community is amazing! The response to our Ride2School day was fantastic! We promoted it by putting up posters around the school, and through the school newsletter. The Your Move flag was borrowed from the Dept of Transport and went a long way to promoting the event. The event complimented our weekly Walk, Ride, Scoot to School day together with our regular Walking School Bus. We were delighted to see more of our families involved, and are hoping this trend continues. On average this year, we have 64% of our students who regularly use active transport to come to school - it increased to 72% on the event day! The students enjoyed receiving their stickers and all names went into a lucky dip prize draw, one winner per class. Thanks to the Your Move Rewards shop for our prizes!

Well Valerie, VP is obviously one of our quiet achievers! In just one paragraph you have managed to let us know about your R2SD day (40 points) and newsletter promo (22 points), that your regular Walk, Ride, Scoot to School day is running in term 1 (90 points) and that your WSB is also active (another 90 points!). You also received a little bonus of 10 points for analysing the travel behaviour of the school on the day. It is really positive to hear that the VPPS community have really got engaged. As this was a bit of an 'executive summary' of some of those activities feel free to post some more details (particularly updates of your Walk, Ride, Scoot and WSB campaigns) to earn some more bonus points. See you soon!
