Travel Smart to School Sign Update

This term we earnt Silver by writing good blogs. We are very happy that we have reached Silver and we are now aiming for Gold. We will get to Gold by writing more blogs and having more competitions during the year. This term we started with decorate your wheels. Next term we are starting by helping the TravelWise Team (adults) with Walk Safely to School Day, with hosted walks to school and serving fruit and vegetable platters at recess time.

Travel Smart Badges

We have been waiting for weeks to get our badges. When we finally got them we were very excited. The badges arrived in Week 8. We got our badges 2 weeks late because of swimming (we didn't have our usual TS sessions during swimming) We wear them every day at school.

Met with Student Volunteers

We had our first meeting today with our student volunteers who are 5 children from year 6. The children are all very excited for the plans for our new committee and came to the meeting with lots of wonderful and bright ideas. They have been tasked with coming up with a name for the new committee and this will then launch into a school wide competition to design a poster promoting the committee and the sentiment behind it.

The children had some fantastic ideas for the future including…

'Mini-ride' on National Ride Safely to School Day

With bridge works in full swing, it was impossible to organise a full ride to school on National Ride Safely to School Day, from a safety perspective, but a few of our 'hard-core' cyclists were determined to mark the event.

And what a spectacular morning it was as you can see in the picture.

We cycled…

Bus travel is useful ... and fun!

We went on an excursion to Perth, to the International Women's Day breakfast.  It was a big cooked breakfast and there were interesting speakers. 

We caught the bus home and had a lot of fun on the bus. 

There was an advertisement on the bus and this gave us the idea of presenting our International Women's Day excursion talk as a news broadcast.

Fume Free Fridays

Last week we made PA announcements about our Fume Free Fridays to remind everyone that it is a good thing to come to school in a TravelSmart way.  No prizes were offered because we wanted students to come to school in a TravelSmart way even if there were no rewards.  In our announcement we said, "Please come to school in a TravelSmart way on Fridays … remember this is a healthy activity, reduces greenhouse gases from cars from going into the atmosphere and lessens traffic congestion around…

Ride to School Day

Hi Everyone

We held our Ride to School Day a week early because two of our classes were going to be away, at our Rottnest Island camp, on the official Ride to School Day.


Before the special TravelSmart day we made announcements over the PA and displayed posters around the school.  Students were given raffle tickets and stickers as they arrived at school on our Ride to School Day.  We drew 20 raffle tickets and students collected their prizes at recess.  Our Ride to…
