Dressing up Walk2School Day

Kylie (Your Move) Murphy

The Perth weather wasn't the only thing putting on a show this Walk2School to School Day - so were our students!

We combined our Walk2School Day with a Free Dress Day. Students were encouraged to bring along a gold coin to donate to Canteen, as part of this term's fundraiser organised by the Year 6s.

Over half our school participated (142 students out of school population of about 260). I think making it fun helps. We also encourage children to ride and scoot as well as walk. This pre-primary student came to school on her balance bike dressed as a mermaid. What a great start to the day!

Thanks Kylie - I've never seen a mermaid on a bicycle - what fun! Over 50% of the school participating is great. You earned 40 points for the event day with the dress up special activity, plus a bonus 10 for letting us know the proportion of participants.
