You can change the world by changing your trip to school!
The Term 2 travelsmart event at St Augustines was Walk Safely to School Day on 29th May. Once again, the City of Belmont supported the event by providing Free breakfast including fruit, muffins and squeezy yoghurts. And for this event, we were lucky enough to also have Mayor, Phil Marks at school to congratulate the students and award our travelsmart DOUBLE PLATINUM certificate!

Usually our TS Team writes the blogs but today it is my turn to relate and pat on the back the power of positive persuasion. As the TS community will be aware, our TS Team run the Warnbro Walker which acknowledges and encourages Active Transport as THE WAY to get to school. The Team regularly checks how each of the classes is going, are there any trends immerging and of course, which class (both Junior and Senior) had the best count.
Bridie, part of our TS Team, took it on herself to…Continue
Love the posters that our Travelsmarties and their families made for us. They were laminated and posted around the school to brighten it up on the day and to bring attention to our healthy breakfasts, supplied by IGA ( fruit platters) Brumby's (sausage rolls) and Jester's (Pies and coffee for adults)…Continue
These posters are FREE ( no points necessary) and come in a pack of 5! If you are low on points (ahem) or just starting out, this is a great way to go. The reason for posting it here is to show how easy it is to alter the sign that this lovely parent volunteer is holding! You can stick to the text already in the…Continue
Tomorrow, the Travelsmarties meet with the Student Councillors. [ Cue: Rocky / Eye of the Tiger Music] These are two groups of hard working motivated students, one voted in by their peers, the other prize winners to an elite group of thinkers and motivators. Together they should be unstoppable!
I will show them the classroom competition video to inspire them. I hope that the Student Councillors can…Continue

Sorry everyone that we've been a little slow in responding to your blogs :-(
The good news is that the cause of the backlog is your prolific blogging about your Walk to School days.
We are slowly catching up (we're up to 12th May), and hope to be back up to date by next week!

Me- I'm all enthusiasm whereas some others are more practical remembering to to take minutes from our meetings and helping identify best routes to take and draw up the policies and procedures. I sure am grateful for this website to provide examples and inspiration for us . We are now up to walking through the proposed routes . One will be North of our school , and the other…Continue

During the day the raffle tickets were collected and placed into the correct year level clusters (k-pp, 1-3 and 4-6).…Continue
