The Riot Act
October 9, 2019
The Riot Act visited St. Aidan’s to deliver the message of the importance of sustainable travel today. Year Seven were entertained as the drama production team used a variety of acts familiar to the students to explain the benefits of walking, cycling, scootering or going on the bus to schools. They hi-lighted what sustainable travel is and how the students can engage in this travel in Tyne and Wear. The students discovered 75% of parents found the car journey to school very stressful and 25% of all car journeys are under 2 miles, which surprised some. The effects of a short car journeys was outlined and how this impacts on the environment. An entertaining afternoon for all.
