Ditch The Dark Day 2017
A big congratulations to everyone for their efforts this week in travelling actively to school by bike, scooter or on foot. Today we had our annual Ditch The Dark Day and we were very impressed by the effort put in to enhance our visibility when out on our bikes, scooters or walking. We chose a winner from each class which was a very tough decision with how amazing everyone looked. Remember we have started working towards our Gold award so all the effort this week is much appreciated and helps us on our way.
The Big Pedal 2017
What a fantastic effort yet again for the Big Pedal 2017. Everyone made such a brilliant effort over the 2 weeks and it was great to see so many travelling by bike and scooter in all weather. We finished 12th in the whole of the UK and 4th in Northern Ireland. Well done everyone!
