Hi , I am a member of the Travel Smart Team .Last week Kath Merrick came to our school and gave us ideas how we might get more students to catch Transperth buses . Her idea and a bit of mine was to have two or three members from Transperth tell us about catching buses and trains , especially because we go to high school next year .

Wow Charthouse PS. What a tremendous job you've done putting together all of the Challenges and Choices kits for teachers. I would love to hear from students and what they now about staying safe while walking and riding to school. Keep up the wonderful job you're all doing. I'm popping 2 storybooks in the post that can be used in your road safety kits. I hope you like them.
Last week we stencilled drains around the school to help everyone be aware of pollution going down the drains. Oil on roads gets washed down the drains when it rains so riding or walking to school reduces the amount of oil on roads.
Year 6 students did stencilling last week and this week Year 7 students will do the stencilling.

All classes from Year 1 to 7 participated in the pre-hands-up survey. We did the survey on a day that wasn't a Fume Free Friday, so we…Continue
