Our Take on NWS2SD.

Last Friday, we had our NWS2SD hosted walks. We had some special guests joining us on our walk. At recess we walked around the undercover areas with fruit & vegetable platters. It was all gone very quickly. When we got back to class that day we were all very happy that lots of people were wearing NWS2SD stickers. It was good that we were able to get some special guests to come to our walks. I didn't like the times when we got crowded by people (when we had the F & V…

White Gum Valley School’s Walk to School was a great success. Students walked to school from all different areas and when they arrived at school they enjoyed some fresh fruit and crackers.  A massive 70% of the school’s students participated in the event, from years 1 to 6. It was lovely weather and it was great to see the students enjoying themselves walking to school.

Weekly TravelSmart quiz

Albany Primary School in conjunction with the TravelSmart Officer from our local council, the City of Albany have started a weekly quiz in our school newsletter.  Children are given a question each week around better options for travel to their school.  The first correct answer drawn out, wins a prize. The kids are loving it and we see many entrants each week.  Some questions require parent help which spurs further family discussion.

GSG Walkathon - a healthy fundraising activity for our whole school community

What a glorious day for our Walkathon!

Friday the thirteenth may be unlucky for some, but it was a lucky day for all students from kindergarten to year 12 at Great Southern Grammar when we held our major fundraiser for 2016 - the Walkathon.

The sun shone over the 3km course that snaked it way up the 'walk to school' path, through the school farm paddocks, behind the boarding houses, and along the perimeter boundary of the school property. This is the same distance as our walk…
