Stunt show prize for school students
Children at Beaconhill Primary School in Cramlington were wowed on a recent visit by Ian Drummond of 3SIXTY Bicycle Stunt Team.
The school won the prize, worth £400, in the Schools Go Smarter Fancy Feet Whirly Wheels challenge where pupils across Tyne and Wear, Northumberland and Durham score points for their school by travelling sustainably to it – this includes walking, cycling or scooting.
Beaconhill finished in third place out of hundreds of schools across the North East.
Students at Beaconhill are encouraged to use active methods of travel and the school has also recently been awarded with bronze accreditation in Modeshift STARS, a national awards scheme supported by the Department for Transport that recognises schools showing excellence in supporting and promoting sustainable travel.
