Council Hands Up!
We are one of the participating councils in the Council Hands Up! Challenges which aims to encourage and support more schools in becoming actively engaged with the Ride2School program.
All Moonee Valley schools that enter Hands Up! data each month will go into the draw to win 50 x Be Safe Be Seen wrist bands, with the winner being drawn each school term. To celebrate Walktober - Walk to School Day, we will give away $500 to the school with the highest participation rate. Schools must register for the Ride2School program and enter Hands Up! survey results on the day to be eligible for the prize.
