On 10th March 2023, after months of planning and research, our school’s active transport representatives, the Youth Travel Ambassadors, presented their vision for active travel to a panel of judges.
With the help of their mentor, Kelly Leat from Transport for Greater Manchester, the ambassadors put together a pitch the judges could not refuse, with powerful messages for the audience to choose from to use as their final slogan: “Ecomotive, pointing at the right direction”.
The student ambassadors have created plans to start walking bus routes to school, to encourage more students to travel in active ways. More information will be shared on this initiative in the coming weeks.

This opportunity has allowed me to speak more confidently in front of an audience.
This day has been very memorable for me; I was impressed by the fact that the judges were personally getting to know us as a school.
We have only got the plans of the project so far, but I am already very excited to participate in the competition.
