Translink Travel Challenge 13 October 2016

Schools Call ‘Action!’ On Translink Travel Challenge

Eco–Schools are delighted to be working with Translink on the Travel Challenge for the eighth year. We would love to see all schools taking part and thinking about green ways to get to school. Reduce congestion around your school gates, get parents thinking eco, and enjoy the health benefits of ditching the car, getting fresh air and exercise for short journeys.

The Translink Travel Challenge is now open to all schools. The Challenge runs all year until 22nd May,for any 2 weeks that you choose. Encourage sustainable travel to school and record your results in the resources provided. Send your results to us for the chance to win super prizes!

This year pupils are also invited to enter a creative #Smartmovers project – with either a short written entry with photos or new this year a 30 second video clip using the phrase ‘We’re smart movers because…’

A celebration award ceremony will be held at Central Station, Belfast inJune. All schools who send results and/or a #Smartmovers project will be entered into a prize draw for an Ulsterbus school trip to Dublin. This is not only a competition but a great project with lots of learning and monitoring resources provided. Visit www.translink.co.uk/ecoschools for more information on the prizes and excellent resources or email ruth.vanry@keepnorthernirelandbeautiful.org
