Redcliffe Primary recently hosted an event for Ride 2 School Day. Students were greeted by the Travelsmart team who were handing out Faction Points, raffle tickets, stickers, tattoos, muesli bars and fruit. We had a great response from the school community with over 70% of the students selecting to arrive at school via a Travelsmart method. Thanks to Emily who organised the breakfast items and popped in to see how we were going.
Well obviously the first thing I have learned is how amazing Booragoon families really are...... 85% of our students getting involved in being TravelSmart... still such a buzz thinking about that empty car park on the day.... and seeing the decorated bikes getting to school just makes my heart sing!!!
Can't wait to see how many people keep up with their new mode of transport through out the year. It certainly has created a buzz at school and people are saying how they are already…

On Wednesday 19 March Charthouse Students participated in a Ride2School event arranged by our P&C Association. We were assisted by P&C Members, Parents, Staff, Student Councillors and Faction Captains.
At Southwell's last assembly, all students who had walked, ridden their bikes or used scooters to get to school had their names put into a raffle. All these students also earned faction points for their factions. There were three raffle winners and some minor prizes of some rub on tattoos. Our Travel smart team even did a little skit showing the kids that they don't have to wait for their parents to drive them to school, they can walk or scoot themselves.…Continue
Consultants have been sighted doing a heritage survey through the bush on the proposed route for the bike path to Great Southern Grammar... does this mean we are one step closer to our safe path to school?

With no bike path or footpath to Great Southern Grammar as yet, there is really no safe way to ride all the way to school. But we're super keen and weren't going to let that stop us - so on the 19th March Ride Safely to School Day, we rode part of the way... and walked the rest.
A group of very keen year 2 and 4 students and their parents set out from Lower King, cycling across the Lower King Bridge and meeting up with more families for the ride through the forest. The track is no…Continue
Swanny is keen to TravelSmart-er. We recently enjoyed an enthusiastic response from many of our students to a free bike workshop run by our P&C Association on 14.3.14. Parent volunteers armed with pumps, spanners and smiles helped kiddos check their tyres, brakes, helmets and chains. We were creating some hype in the lead up to Ride2School Day (19.3.14).
Here are some photos from the workshop:…Continue
Our Ride 2 School Day on 19 March was very successful. 44 % of our students were TravelSmart on our baseline Hands Up survey day and 62% were TravelSmart on the Ride 2 School day. This is a great improvement! We are trying to maintain this behaviour by having Fume Free Fridays.

In our school community we have many families using Active Transport to travel to school.
We do however have some congestion and parking issues around our school too.
There are some families interested in tackling these issues and also rewarding those students and families that are active and healthy, helping to keep congestion and emissions down, and…Continue
200 Falcon PS students rode to school on Wednesday for Ride2School Day. Each class selected 2 students to receive a prize at today's assembly and the class with the most riders also received prizes. Some of our Year4/5 students demonstrated bike safety and riding tips that they learnt from their bike education lessons on Wednesday. Murray and Elizabeth from Westcycle ran sessions all day and we highly reccommend this program.
Not only was it our regular Walk and Wheely Wednesday, it was also National Ride2 school day…Continue
