Pedal power proves a spectacle
MURWILLUMBAH East Primary School students provided quite the spectacle when they took part in National Ride to School Day on Friday.
More than 120 teachers, students and their families, donned helmets for the mass ride from Queens Park in Murwillumbah along the main street, past the Tweed Shire Council chambers and on to their Charles St school.
Local SES volunteers helped with safety and traffic control as did members of the local triathlon club.
Students rode bikes, skateboards and scooters or walked along the route.
The ride promotes the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle and alternative transport choices for getting to and from school.
It also emphasises the benefits of families being active together.
