Winterfold Staff Leading the Way

Julia Calvert

Along with celebrating World Bicycle Week, we also celebrated our staff members who regularly ride to school. (This is a late entry as it has taken me a few weeks to catch them all with their bikes for a photo!)

Mr Kaloczy, Music Teacher, Mr Simojoki, Year 2 Teacher, and Mrs Punch, Education Assistant, are consistent fume friendly bike riders. Only the worst of weather forces them to rely on their 4 wheel alternatives.

It is quite difficult for teachers and other school staff to take fume friendly transport as many of us don’t live in riding distance, take bags of marking to and from home or arrive really early and leave late – I have watched the sun rise from my classroom window on occasion!

However, these three Winterfold staff members are showing us the way and hopefully with inspire others to follow.

Winterfold has some fantastic role models there Julia - are you planning to also place this story in the school newsletter to maximise exposure? How did you celebrate these role models with the kids, perhaps at an assembly?

Hi James. Unfortunately at the moment we are not allowed to hold assemblies so it was just part of our Your Move announcement for Bicycle Week. We are featuring these staff in our Your Move newsletter which will be going out shortly. It's finished but we just need a final YM meeting to approve the final copy.
