Preparations are well under way for active travel day on Friday the 4th of March. To celebrate riding, walking, skating and scooting as fun ways to travel to school, we are organising two Bicycle Victoria Representatives to provide stickers and prizes on the day.
We support our students to walk or wheel to school because:
• Students feel fresh and alert at the beginning of a school day.
• There are fewer cars around the school which eases ‘drop off congestion’.
• Students are more likely to reach the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity they need each day.
• Students feel happier, healthier and perform better in the classroom.
Parents can join in the fun by walking or wheeling with the students by meeting us at the Stop and Drop Zone at 8:30 at O’Neil road. Just remember that all students must be wearing a helmet at all times. We also have a bike shed where students will be able to safely leave their ‘wheels’ throughout the day.
Thanks you for your support.
