Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — Congratulations to the students, families, teachers and staff at St Mary's Primary School in St Kilda East for their successful Bicycle Network Victoria Ride2School day. It was great to meet so many students and so many families who rode, walked, scooted, skated or caught public transport to school. 

St Mary's is going a step further and having a whole month dedicated to riding to school. It is collecting data on students' modes of transport for each class to report on at the end of the month. This is a fantastic initiative that will improve the health of students and reduce congestion on our local streets. As the local member I am committed to making sure our local streets are safe so parents have the confidence to leave the car at home and choose active travel instead. I look forward to seeing more St Mary's families riding and walking to school as I ride to Parliament.
