Monk Fryston Weekly News 23.4.21

The Big Pedal.

Thank you for supporting our bike/scoot/walk to school initiative ‘The Big Pedal’ this week. We have done really well! After the first day, we were placed 55th in the whole of Great Britain and Ireland, which is amazing! We improved a little during the week and then fell down the list a nit, so that after Thursday we were 65th which is still a great achievement. The competition continues next week, and there are prizes to be won by individuals, classes and schools so please encourage your child to take part. By doing so, they are also really supporting our environment.
