TFL Stars Active Travel Day

23rd June 2016

On Thursday 9 June Stormont House School hosted a Transport For London Active Travel Day, where students from Years 7,8 and 9 took part in a day where they could experience cycling on a variety of adapted bicycles which were supplied by ‘Bikeworks’. Students were shown how to ride the different bikes safely, the instructors concentrated on road safety. The sessions took place across the whole day and each student got a great deal from the experience.

In the afternoon the students undertook a selection of workshops, which included filming road safety commercials with Ms Parisio, creating posters with a road safety theme and practical sessions led by Ms Driver, who showed students in Year 7 the correct way to use a zebra crossing. Transport For London provided  sessions which were run by William Wybrew one of their Safety and Citizenship trainers.  These sessions included using role play to look at what the students would do in different traffic / road safety scenarios.

 The Active Travel Day is part of our work with TfL STARS (Sustainable Travel, Active, Responsible, Safe), which is a scheme to inspire young Londoners to travel sustainably, actively, responsibly and safely. It also encourages active travel behaviour and improves the environment around our school.  We are one of almost 1,500 schools, nurseries and colleges in London who undertake the STARS scheme.
