This year Woodland Grove Primary School have been promoting Active Transport by conducting a weekly Walking School Bus.

Staff from Woodland Grove Primary School meet community members and students at two meeting points and everyone walks, cycles or scoots safely to school. Every participant receives Faction tokens which will tally up for an end of term reward.

Eddy, a student who regularly participates in the Walking School Bus said, "I love walking to school because it is healthy for me and I get to talk to my teachers."

Woodland Grove Primary School secured a grant through Your Move by achieving Silver status in 2019. The grant provided us with a new Scooter Rack.

Woodland Grove Primary School is attempting to increase active transport. Many initiatives are in place and we hope to continue to have less of our community driving and increased walking or cycling to school.

The Scooter rack will be an incentive for students to 'scoot' to school, allowing students' to store their scooter during learning time.

National Ride to School Day

This story is related to National Ride2School Day

On Friday, the 13th March, Woodland Grove PS celebrated the Freaky Friday National Ride2School Day. Students had a lot of fun dressing up.

The event also complemented our Active Transport Day, so our community continued with the tradition of meeting at one of two meeting points at 8am and all making our way to school, similar to a walking school bus. Every participant received a raffle ticket and went in the draw to win some great prizes.

All Pre-Primary to Year 6 students were surveyed on their mode of transport on this day. 42% arrived via car; 30% arrived via bike or scooter; and 28% walked.

Since our last survey in February, there has been a decrease in driving and an increase in Active Transport.

Keep up the great work Woodland Grove PS community.
