Bike to School Week Coordinator still needed

Without a PAC coordinator Bike to School week won’t happen at our school next year!

Please consider taking on this role. This is a big community building role and Ross Road kids LOVE bike to school week, we are listed on the HUB website as one of the Top Trips!

There are a ton of resources and prizes that we won last year, this role is not a fresh start!

As the coordinator you can either lead it or form a committee and make it anything you want it to be. Typically there is an opening morning with a group of parents who are keen to attend and set up fun stations and hand out prizes.  The other big component is to sign up with HUB (which only takes 2 minutes) and then to organize teachers to track bike rides each day and had in the tally sheets at the end of the week. You will need to total the bike rides to school and submit to HUB.

We have all the form templates that can be reused and informational emails.

To volunteer or find out more about this role contact the PAC at
