Ilford Recorder – Bike Week

A number of children at Goodmayes Primary School enjoyed a cycling commute this week as part of a national initiative to promote active travel. Staff at the Castleton Road school were keen to get their youngsters involved to promote the benefits of travelling by bike.

Headteacher Ms Samina Jaffar said: “Bike to School Week provides an opportunity for children to experience the benefits of active types of travel such as cycling to school. We want children to learn that cycling is good for them and the planet, and an appealing option as a form of travel.” Ms Jaffar added that, “despite the current challenges we are dealing with”, the school is determined to continue providing its youngsters with “experiences that will develop their mental and physical well-being”.
