Ride2School Day

Valerie Thompson

Traffic congestion?? Not a problem on our Ride2School day held last Wednesday! Over 75% of our school population walked, rode or scooted to school making for a most successful day. On arrival, students from PP-Yr 6 ticked off their name on their class list to go into a lucky dip prize draw where one student per class won a Ride2School gift pack. Students were given a sticker before enjoying fruit and yoghurt to celebrate their healthy start to the day.

When asked about the event day, the overwhelming message from the students was that they found it quicker and easier to cross the road and felt safer doing so. They also enjoyed meeting their friends along the way as they used active transport to come to school. We already have many families who come to school using active transport on a regular basis. Hopefully our successful event day encourages more families to do the same on a more regular basis.

Love how empty your set down and pick up area looks. That is what I am hoping for at our next walk & ride to school day!
