Premiers Active April

Get active on wheels!

Active April is making it their mission to support parents and schools to encourage, empower and enable more students to get physically active on their journey to school.

Whether it be hopping on a bike or cruising on a skateboard, it’s all about creating a fun and active ride to school while promoting a healthy school community.

That’s why Bicycle Network have teamed up with Active April once again this year to help get all students involved in physical activity. Students who ride or walk to school contribute to their minimum physical activity level of 60 minutes per day. They are also more focused and ready to learn compared to those who are driven.

Bicycle Network’s Ride2School Program supports thousands of schools across Australia to develop a healthy active travel culture. By participating in Bicycle Networks Ride2School Day held on 23 March 2018, you could win a Bicycle Network Active Map program for up to 20 students!

All school teams registered by midnight 29 March 2018, will also go into the draw to win a Mind Body Pedal course run by Bicycle Network plus a half-day All Aboard skateboarding workshop run by the Victorian Skateboarding Association.

The All Aboard Skateboarding Session is a gender inclusive skateboarding workshop program that allows those who have never skated to try for the first time in a welcoming and inclusive environment, potentially starting participants on a pathway that can lead to regular, independent skateboarding.

Naturally the program also provides support for participants who already skate, helping them to set challenges and improve technique. Ultimately, its fun learning!

So, why not be a part of this amazing movement and encourage your kids to ride or skate to school and win great prizes while you do it.
