At St Bernie's last year we were very, very excited to receive a Gold medallion from the Your Move team. Achieving a gold medallion meant that our school had the choice of several amazing bike, path or scooter infrastructure initiatives to choose from. We chose to install a brand new lockable scooter rack and new bike rack to add into our existing bike rack area. Our students are now able to lock up their scooters in their own designated area which they were never able to do before and we can also cater for an extra 10 bikes to be locked up with the addition of the new bike rack. We were so excited about our new racks that we placed pictures and a little story up on facebook to our school community and we received an amazing response from many grateful parents. Thanks again Your Move, these new racks have had such a positive impact and we are now encouraging more students to ride scooters and bikes to and from school.

Hi Kristy - thanks for sharing your story of your Connecting Schools grant. It sounds like you made a really good choice of how to spend the grant. You earned 40 points for unlocking the Connecting Schools grant plus another 22 points for promoting it on Facebook. I also gave you a bonus 10 for making such an enthusiastic and detailed post!
