Greater Wellington Regional Council's School Travel Coordinator Kirsty Bar and Wairarapa Road Safety Council's Projects Coordinator visited Greytown School this week to hear stories from students about how they love Movin'March. William dressed up his bike and joined his friend Sam despite the rainy start. Noah saved up pocket money he earned doing jobs so he could buy himself a bike. He's now excited about the prospect of biking to school every morning. Kirsty says "It's fantastic to see how children get so much joy from biking, how they relish the independence and freedom of getting to school under their own steam. This is how it used to be, and how it could be again with the right support and guidance. Movin'March tries to be a catalyst for making these kinds of changes and this is a great example of how ready children are to take up the challenge". Movin'March runs until 29 March and there will be a winner of a $300 Avanti voucher for each district in the Wellington region announced later in April.
