Travel

The Travel theme is funded by the Department of Transport and supported by the National Transport Authority. The ultimate aim of the theme is to increase the number of students walking, cycling, scooting, using public transport or carpooling on the way to school.
Sustainable Development Goals

During 2019/2020 over 4,000 students cycled to school, and 300 bike parking spaces were installed, along with over 800 scooter parking spaces!

Travel has been a wonderful flag to work towards; it has such a positive impact and involves parents and the local community and connected everyone to their local environment more. It also promotes good health and a more active lifestyle, benefiting not just our environment but our bodies too!
