A ST AUSTELL school is 'wheelie' happy after becoming the first in the town to receive an award for encouraging children to take more sustainable travel.
Pondhu School was presented with the Sustrans School Mark, for excellence in sustainable travel.
Head teacher Debbie Tregellas said everyone at the school was delighted with the award, which acknowledges the efforts the school has made to ditch the car and encourage children and their parents to take more active steps to get to and from school.
"We are very proud to be the first school in St Austell to achieve this.
"It has been a real team effort from parents, governors and the children, of course, to become more aware about getting to school in a more active way," she said.
The children have walked, cycled and even used their scooters to travel into school while embracing the 'be seen' message and wearing bright colours.
