Great New Prizes to encourage active transport

St Augustine Primary School was fortunate to achieve silver status for Your Move in 2019 and we used that to unlock a grant. Thanks to Your Move and The Bicycle Entrepreneur, we were able to choose $1000 worth of prizes as incentive to encourage active transport to and from school.

In order to use this as a promotional activity and also raise funds for the school, the Year 6 Your Move team has designed a scavenger hunt which will be held in term 3. Students will be asked to seek sponsorship and find certain objects and mark them off a list as they walk or ride to school. Prizes will be awarded for the most objects found and best fundraising efforts. Our prizes include a brand new bike, a helmet, bike lights, locks and a bike rack for fitting bikes to the back of a car for longer journeys.

We are really excited about being able to have parents join us in the school for our next event too, now that Covid restrictions have eased!

Hi Jacinta - well done for accessing the Connecting Schools grant. Your prize pack definitely seems like it will be a great incentive for kids to be using more AT to get to St A's. I think they'll have a blast with your scavenger hunt - make sure you let us know how it goes. Also don't forget to post a story telling us if you put anything in your newsletter about the grant and prizes!
