At the moment we have some of the TravelSmart signs at our school to use during events. We currently have one of the signs on display in the school library. Mikail (one of our TravelSmart children) got very excited whilst putting it on display.

From now on we will be giving out free movie tickets to one teacher or parent who blogs their school's milestones. This could be reporting on an event, sharing a TravelSmart story or updating us on their various achievements throughout the year.

On the 23rd March, we had Cycle To School Day. There was a great response, with 176 kids riding, which was 56% of the school. An additional 73 kids walked and 2 kids caught the bus- a fantastic 75% of the school travelling smart to school.
Judging the Best Dressed Bike Competition was really hard as everyone put in a really big effort. Someone had to be lucky enough to win the awesome prizes.
