BIKE WEEK

JUNE 14th – 22nd

Bike Week is another very exciting part of the Travel Programme.

The aim of Bike Week is to more people cycling, more safely, more often.

National COW Day (Cycle on Wednesday) is on Wednesday 18th.

We are delighted with our new bike shelter and will be holding an unveiling ceremony that day.

There will be some activities in and around the school during that week, projects, bike games etc.

All students who cycle to school will be given a raffle ticket and entered into a draw at the end of the week. Great prizes guaranteed.

Students in senior classes have completed their cycling course with Noel Connolly and his team. They now know they should:

  • ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET

  • Always check the bike – brakes, tyres etc.

  • Cycle a bike that fits

  • Wear correct gear – fluorescent clothes during the day

reflective clothes in the evening/night

  • Use cycle paths

  • Keep bike in good order

  • NEVER use an ipod, phone when cycling

Ally Menary, Dave Cahill, Taylor Cahill and Ella Byrne will be participating in a cycle audit around the village on Thursday June 5th. Findings will be posted at later date.

 

 

PARK N STRIDE                 

The Parents’ Association are pleased to announce that the GAA pitch will be open for parking and striding to school every morning and afternoon. This is another very positive step for us and should make walking and cycling to school even safer for all. The Green School Committee very much appreciate the support from all involved. We hope to start this as soon as possible. The Parents’ Association will be in touch when dates for starting etc are finalised.

 

GREEN DOG WALKERS

........(A project initiated by county councils)  is a non-confrontational friendly way to change attitudes about dog fouling. We as a Green School  are very much aware of the need to ensure children are safe travelling to/from school and we fully support this initiative. We have posted a copy of the leaflet with more information. There are some available in the school and in our local County Buildings and at the Murrough Recycling facility.

NOTE

Please do not bring your dog onto the school grounds.
