At Ballymena Primary School we are currently working with Sustrans to complete our Silver Award for sustainable travel to and from school. We want to encourage our pupils to travel to school in active way to achieve the following aims:
- To improve pupil health and wellbeing by encouraging regular exercise
- To make our school entrance safer by reducing traffic and educating pupils on road safety
- To lessen our impact on the environment by reducing traffic
In 2015/16 we completed a range of activities and events to spread this message including a Neon Day, on-road cycle training, The Big Pedal, bicycle workshops, cycling proficiency and regular assemblies and visits from our Sustrans officer Johnny, and successfully achieved the Bronze Award. You can view pictures on our Gallery.
