Ride 2 School Day
Ride 2 School Day
The 2016 National Ride2School Day took place on Friday, 5th March and what an amazing day it was!
Our students and parents arrived in large numbers either by bike, scooter, skateboard or legs and our entrance was graced with lots of colour and happiness.
Miss Otte and the students in Yr. 4O volunteered again this year to organize the event.
They did a survey on Friday, 26th February to determine how many of our students either rode their bikes, scooters, skateboards, walked or used public transport to school.
They then began their campaign to promote the Ride2School Day, in an attempt to improve and increase a more physical way for our students to come to school!
Our congratulations to both Miss Otte and the students in Yr. 4O for their efforts, as they not only managed to include the process into their Maths lessons, but also increased the physical activity of our students when coming to school.
Last year in 2015, 151 students rode their bikes, 71 students walked, 13 students caught public transport and 91 students came by car. This year 221 students rode their bikes, 45 students walked, 9 students caught public transport and 51 came by car.
Well done to all.
We also welcomed Counselor Anita Horvath from the Port Phillip Council and Tony and Darren from the Bicycle Network, who were all very impressed and complimentary about the number of students and parents who made such an effort.
We would like to thank Shane J. from Fruit Addicts (father of Lily & Sadie) for his generous donation of the delicious fruit for everyone on the day.
As you can see by the photos, our bike and scooter area was jam packed, leaving little room for more!
Congratulations to Patrick G. and Luca M. for winning the best decorated bikes and to the other students who did a wonderful job in decorating their bikes as well.
Congratulations to all and we look forward to an even better result next year.
