THE BIG PEDAL


WELL DONE!

Hadrian Park pupils use pedal power to get to school!

During the 1950’s, 100,000 UK children were cycle trained, at a time when nearly 44% of the total number of miles (travelled by bike and car) were travelled by bike. Today, just over 1% of the 252 billion miles covered by bikes and cars are travelled by bike.

Hadrian Park pupils made 1366 trips to and from school, finished 149th Nationally, and finished 17th Locally which included schools from Yorkshire, Humberside and the North East.

"The pupils really enjoyed coming to school on thier bikes, and taking part in this great event and have said that they will continue using their bikes for school." said Headteacher - Jane Parker

Reception, Foundation and Year one were clear winners in the participation stakes, but all pupils who took part say they thought it was fun cycling to school.

During assembly each morning all of the pupils were made awareof how important wearing a cycle helmet was, and that how wearing a helmet had saved the life of a member of staff.
