The Big Pedal Challenge Results
Longstone win 11th Place in the Big Pedal Challenge ! Greg Thomas Active travel officer from Sustrans helped us organise a cycle to school challenge on the 18th and 19th March with a big Superhero cycle to conclude on the 20th March . We had a fantastic 62.88% of our pupils turn out at 8am to cycle from Hassop Station Cafe along the Monsal trail to arrive bright and early at school. A fantastic turnout of 58 staff and parents along with 83 children was a sight to behold. The fact that we returned safely to school to watch the eclipse made this a very memorable day indeed.
Doctor Bike - 15th April
Doctor Bike will be in school all day. He will be able to give your bikes a quick health check and repair minor repairs such as flat tyres, brakes and loose nuts and bolts to get you back on your bike again. Sign up with Mrs Gaywood the day before, then bring your bike to school in the morning. You can pick it up at home time all repaired and ready for action. There are 20 doctor's appointments for children in Classes 4 and 5. Please label your bike with your name and a short note addressed to Dr. Bike as to why it may be “poorly”.
