On March 23rd Lakelands Primary school celebrated National Ride To School Day by dressing up their bikes. Leading up to the event our Your Move team was very busy getting everything organised by sending out flyers to all classrooms, posting information in the staff bulletin and school newsletter. Reminders were announced over our P.A system and discussions were also had at our Friday morning values assemblies. On the day as the gates opened to the school, our Your Move team took their positions and got to work. We had a huge turn out of bikes and scooters all beautifully decorated. Our team were busy taking photos of some of our best yet decorated bikes and scooters, other members were assisting students to put their bikes into our bike racks safely, we were also handing out stickers to all who participated. During recess time our judges had a very hard decision to choose 3 bikes as winners, however after a very long discussion three winners were selected and announced over our PA system after recess time. These winners received some great You Move goodies. The day was a great success and as a result we had a lot of students choosing active transport to school. Some of our teachers also used this day as a great opportunity to teach our students about bike safety ( some great lesson ideas to come).
