Gulmarrad Public enjoy a healthy start to day
FRIDAY, March 4 marked the ninth National Ride2School Day, where more than 300,000 Australian children rode, scooted, skated or walked to school.
Ride2 School is an initiative of the Bicycle Network and this annual event aims to provide the opportunity for students to embrace a healthier start and to try walking and riding to school for themselves.
This year, as with previous years, the students, staff and parents from Gulmarrad Public School were out in force to support this worthwhile and fun activity.
After assembling at the Gulmarrad Fire shed for a safety check, the eager group of riders and walkers headed off. It was a wonderful way to start the day and has hopefully encouraged more students and families to make being active part of their day.
Special thanks to Ms Wallace for organising the event and to the parents who provided supervision and acted as road crossing supervisors. Well done.
