400 pupils from Southend on Sea took part in a cycle safari!

The Southend Borough Council’s Cycle Southend team recently took 400 pupils from Southend High School for Boyson a Cycle Safari.

 

Cycle Safaris constitute a part of the Cycling in the Curriculum project, and aim to provide experiences that are both exciting and educational. The Cycle Safaris make use of existing cycle infrastructure,and allow children the opportunity to learn about their local heritage and culture. They’re particularly great at providing schools with the chance to engage in educational activities outside of the classroom;as well as educating students on how to travel sustainably and live a healthy lifestyle. One teacher described their Cycle Safari as ”the best school trip yet and completely sustainable”.
