On February 13th 2013, to coincide with Valentine’s Day, Tubber National School held a ‘Love Your Bike Day’ as part of our quest for our fourth Green Flag, the theme being Travel.
Roisín Garvey, Green schools education officer from An Taisce came to the school on the day. She showed the children how to secure a helmet properly, how to maintain their bicycles and discussed the importance of road safety. All the children took part in an obstacle course created in the school yard. The children also got the opportunity to decorate their bicycles.
Roisín organised for Garda Iomar McClearn, a member of the Traffic Corp. of Ennis Garda station, to accompany the senior children along with their teachers and a parent on a trip in the locality. The day concluded with a raffle of some fantastic prizes.
A fun day was had by all and everyone is looking forward to seeing more children cycling, walking or carpooling to school.
