Just keep being inspired by this Team.... At the end of last term, Juliette told the Team about a piece she had written about Active Travel. I asked her to share it with us this term so that we could discuss further & how we could use it in our school setting. Here is that little gem:
I think you should ride a scooter or bike than come by car. Here are my reasons. First I think if you come by car you don't have exercise & isn't exercise healthy especially for humans? Would you rather be lazy & sit in a boring car than get out in the fresh air & stretch those legs than sit in a cramped car where you can hardly breathe? Yeah didn't think so.
Next I mean if you have a sibling & you have a fight, there are paths you can separate from them & chill while you ride somewhere! Oh and if you argue with your sibling or parents, having a long bike ride would make you calm & relaxed because you are out in the open & having a long ride can make you forget why you were angry in the first place.
Lastly wouldn't it be nice for everyone to say wow here comes so & so riding a super bike! Maybe by riding your bike you would encourage others to ride too & find out how much fun it is.
I'm a YMer so that is basically my job! So that's why you should come to school & everywhere by bike.
Mentor's note: The simplicity of thought & the conviction of youth. Such wise words in someone so young. No wonder I am inspired! Add to the mix that this was completely voluntarily written (at home) & mentioned during our last session of last term. (& remembering to bring it to share with the Team without being reminded!)
