Congratulations Charthouse PS

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.

TravelSmart helps water quality of Swan River!

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.

Three big boxes of prizes arrived at the school yesterday - prizes to encourage and reward everyone for coming to school by bike, scooter or walking.  The prizes we ordered included bike helmets, locks and bells, apple slicers, a fancy umbrella and lots more.  We hope these prizes make a huge difference to our post-hands-up survey results.
