On Friday, the 13th March, Woodland Grove PS celebrated the Freaky Friday National Ride2School Day. Students had a lot of fun dressing up.

The event also complemented our Active Transport Day, so our community continued with the tradition of meeting at one of two meeting points at 8am and all making our way to school, similar to a walking school bus. Every participant received a raffle ticket and went in the draw to win some great prizes.

All Pre-Primary to Year 6 students were surveyed on their mode of transport on this day. 42% arrived via car; 30% arrived via bike or scooter; and 28% walked.

Since our last survey in February, there has been a decrease in driving and an increase in Active Transport.

Keep up the great work Woodland Grove PS community.

Hi Clayton - and welcome back to all at Woodland Grove PS for the new year. 58% walking and cycling to school is a brilliant result - and clearly a whole lot of fun was had! You have earned 40 points for your R2SD plus 20 for adding in the dress up element. You also received 10 points for sharing the travel survey results of the day. Can you tell us a bit more about your Active Transport Day (or even better, post a story on it)? How often does it happen?
