As part of the Sustrans Active Schools Travel programme we had a 'Ditch The Dark Day' on Friday 18 January 2019.
Many of our pupils walked, scooted or cycled to school. They also wore bright and colourful clothing. Accessories were bright and creative, even bicycles and scooters were reflecting the theme! The money raised will be used by our School Eco Council to purchase some prizes for the winning classes of this years monthly Interclass Active Travel Competition and also to purchase some new equipment for our gardening club.
It was lovely to welcome once again Mr Dave Wiggins, our Sustrans Officer, and also Mr Michael Kennedy from the Department of Infrastructure which helps fund the work of Sustrans. Mr Wiggins led a whole school assembly, were he reiterated the importance of being bright and seen during the winter.
It was a very busy (and bright) day as you will see by browsing through our photo gallery;
