National award winning cyclists!

Staff, pupils and parents at Leswalt Primary were delighted today when it was announced the Leswalt Primary was the winning Scottish school, and 2nd out of 1100 schools in the UK who took part in “The Big Pedal”.

This was the result of 15 days real effort by the whole community – to leave the cars at home and cycle to school.

Congratulations to all!

Cycling in the snow

Leswalt Primary pupils continue to cycle in all weathers – and pupils went that bit extra today by cycling to school in the snow.   Many resembled snowmen on bicycles by the time they reached school!

All this effort is to great effect as Leswalt Primary is currently now 2nd place in the National Big Pedal competition. (

And once the sun came out this afternoon pupils had some more cycling fun in the form of safety games on bikes, with Ann Ferguson (Active Schools Co-ordinator).  Pupils rode around the playground learning more about helmets and safety while cycling.  P1-4 even had a slow bicycle race! This helped the children focus on their balance and co-ordination.
