Coral Park Primary School is encouraging students and their families to get up, get active and get healthy.

As part of National Ride2School Day 74 students and their families rode to school on their bikes or scooters and 173 walked.

Ms Graley congratulated the school for their participation and donated ten new bicycle helmets for students to use on the school’s new bikes.

“Coral Park is an outstanding local school that has yet again shown their commitment to ensuring students, staff and their families are fit, healthy and active,” 

“I was particularly impressed with the school’s new House Captains who are working hard to encourage more students to ride or walk to school throughout the year,”

“It is incredibly important that we all find the time to get active and exercise and I encourage everyone to take part in Premier’s Active April.”

Each year Premier’s Active April encourages Victorians, whatever their level of fitness, gender or age to commit to 30 minutes of physical activity a day throughout April.

Coral Park Primary School teacher Matthew Brand said he was very happy with the response from the school community,

“There are normally 6 bikes in the bike shed on a regular school day, yet there were 70 bikes on Ride2School day.”

“Many parents also participated by riding their bikes to school, others opted to walk or ride their scooters, it was a great success.”
