Ysgol Tycroes began the Sustrans Bronze school mark award in October 2016. Our aim as a school is to see more pupils choosing an active and healthy journey to school. 

We elected an Active Journeys Crew. These are the Active Journey's Crew members.

Fast Friday

Pupils are asked to scooter or cycle to school every Friday.  Those children are then entered into a draw at the end of every month!

We used 'Plot a route' to identify different routes that pupils use to travel to school.
