Scheme helping youngsters at North Cave Primary keep fit

A scheme that encourages youngsters to keep fit has proved popular among pupils at North Cave Primary School.

‘Fit Friday’ was started by North Cave Primary a few years ago and has since been adopted by other East Riding schools.

For the last two Fridays, the majority of its pupils have walked or rode their scooter to school, where they have been greeted by the Lollipop rabbit, who was there to highlight road safety.

The school is holding two more Fit Fridays over the next couple of weeks.

Those who take part receive a sticker and their name goes into a draw to win a prize.

Nancy Smart, from the school, said: “The junior road safety officers have been encouraging children to travel to the school safely and in a healthy way by walking or riding their scooters.

“They seem to enjoy it.”

The school has two junior road safety officers, Hannah Gamble and Eliza Vessey-Baitson.
