Postscript to Reflections Part 2.

With Michaela sick all of last week, I wasn't sure whether she would return in time to complete her reflections of her TS year. 

While the rest of the TS Team, quickly finished off Star Card business & prep for the Q&A with "prospective" 2017 TS  "applicants," Michaela beavered  with her reflections & TAG ( Tip, Advice, Good wish) for the incoming 2017 Team. True to the teamwork this group has established, all was done & dusted by everyone (in the time allotted), ready…

Bikefest 2016

GSG's Bikefest 2016 saw 129 bikes and 17 scooters lining the grass as students from Years 1-6 joined in the cycle festivities.

This year we featured:

  • safety messages - what protective gear to wear
  • current safety messages - "share the road" and "be safe, be seen switch on"
  • a series of videos on different cycling styles - the source of lots of 'ooohhs' and 'aaahhs'!
  • bike maintenance workshop
  • road skills lessons (hand…

Reflections Part 2.

The highlight was getting to Platinum. That was also the good part! 

The not so good was nearly not getting the Winter Warm-up Competition up & running because we had some hiccups, but we got them sorted & everything came together. 

The best thing for me was speaking at Assemblies.

Something I learnt was better team skills. 

My good wish for the 2017 TS Team is to achieve Double Platinum.


(Mentor's note: With a Q & A next week with…

Travel Smart Student Leaders' Presentations.

"It has been an honour & privilege for Ms Riley & me to work with an exceptional group of students comprising the TS Team, who have encouraged all of you to use Active Transport as THE WAY to come to school. 

This group has achieved MUCH this year: events like the Farewell WOO Challenge  & ongoing campaigns like the Warnbro Walker & Star Cards; 147 points short of Double Platinum, that means the TST has earnt nearly 1000 points during this year.

We want to…

Reflections Part 1.

As half our Team is away on camp, I took the opportunity to ask our Year 5s to jot down their reflections on 2016.

The highlight was working as a team & getting things done. The good stuff were the events that happened eg R2SD, NWS2SD, W2SD and getting Platinum at the end of Term 1. The not so good was some of the Team didn't want to go to meetings or they didn't work their hardest. The best thing was working as a team & setting up events for students to use AT.

Our Junior Green Team and coordinating staff have been working hard to come up with ideas on how to make the roads around our school safer. Parents, staff and students often comment on how dangerous it is for our students to be crossing a main road to get to school every morning. We are petitioning to get a lollipop lady at or near the roundabout on Safety Bay Road so students are able to cross safely onto Baldivis Road. If you are a student, teacher, parent or community member that commutes…
