Ride2School Day is a nationwide program delivered by Bicycle Network, designed to support schools to encourage, empower and enable more students to get physically active on their journey to school.
This is a great opportunity to embrace a healthier start to the day by riding, scooting or walking to school and this is precisely what the majority of our children and families did at the end of last term!
Cr Dick Gross from Port Phillip Council, Karen Jones from the EcoCentre and members from Bicycle Network attended our event. So many children dressed up their bikes, scooters and skateboards, or chose to decorate their helmets! Many just wore a big smile on their dial as they arrived at 8.30am for a morning of happiness and celebration. The prizes for the most active class and for the best decorated bikes we will announced at assembly next week.
Thank you to all SRCs for advertising the event and collecting our active travel; to the Year 4 teachers and many other staff members for chopping all the lovely food for our healthy breakfast; to Cr Dick Gross and John Bartels (Sustainable Transport Coordinator) from Port Phillip Council, Rebecca Lane and Lorraine Lequire from Bicycle Victoria and Karen Jones from the Eco Centre for attending and supporting the event.
462 students walked/rode/skated or scooted to school on the Ride2School day, what a fantastic effort!
