You can change the world by changing your trip to school!
At our last assembly for Term 2 a raffle was conducted by the Yr 6 Environment Officers. Well done to the 100+ travel smarties who received a travelsmart sticker. Then ten (10) lucky student's names were drawn out of a bike helmet! They all received a movie pass. Enjoy!
