The Big Pedal that was led by our school eco council proved to be a massive success. We involved lots of the school community including staff, students and a parent. I had a bit of a disaster with my bike the first week (see blog post here) but managed to clock up 200 miles in the second week. My biggest weekly distance so far. The whole school got behind the initiative and it was good to see so many people throwing them into the spirit of the competition. As well as reducing our carbon footprint and keeping ourselves fit and healthy the data from the 3 weeks of cycling will be analysed in Maths and ICT lessons.
The school eco council continues to go from strength to strength and this is just one of the many things the group are currently involved with. You can see local newspaper coverage of the Big Pedal by clicking here.
Hopefully the amount of staff and students cycling to school will remain high throughout the coming months.
