The Cycle of Bike Education at Warnbro.

Over the last 2 years, one of the TS Teams' goals has been to fund Bike Ed. for Years 3 & 4 students.  We are pleased to say that that goal has been realized in both years. Not only has the goal been achieved on both occasions but it is significant  because it has been  altruistic ( our Teams funded but were not participants in Bike Ed)

Last week this year's Bike Ed concluded with Instructor Murray taking the 2 groups through their final circuits. A big thank you, Murray for your…

The TSTS Green Team of Baldivis Secondary College.

Lately in our meetings we have been talking about 'Getting to School Safely'. Do you have any ideas that can help us. We have also just been given our BRONZE sticker in the Travel Smart. We are also wondering if you can help us in our survey on "what way you walk to school'. This will help us a lot in our stencil project.

Thx Ava Allen Junior Green Team.

FAREWELL WALK OVER OCTOBER

On the 26-10-16 is Walk 2 School Day. We will be hosting 3  W2SD walks. We will be serving fruit platters at recess & there will be stickers given to everyone who chooses AT.

We are using these walks as our Farewell to WOO.

The reason for our Farewell to WOO is that the Heart Foundation is no longer funding WOO as an event any more. The HF is  moving to Walk WA. It will not be for one day BUT every day.

Isla & David

 

(Mentor's note: We will…

Winter Warm-up Hiccup!

Last week Salsabila, Matthew & I were in a bit of a hiccup. Michaela did not get to print out our colouring-ins for WWU. The Year 6s weren't here because of transition. We couldn't find computers that were free, but then Mrs Blackburn helped us print out the drawings (colouring-ins) & we still had to do a lot of things. 

Salsabila had to hand out the WWU & explain to the classes in Years 3 & 4. Matthew had to do the same with Pre-Primaries & Year 1 & I had to…

Why I help

 Hi i am Naomi. I am a student at Forest Crescent Primary school. I am a travel smart helper and I like being one. The best thing about being a Travel Smartie is being able to help the environment by not using the car so much.

Dedication to Travel Smart

Hi I am Bethany. I am a Year 5 at Forest Crescent  primary school. I have just became a travel smart helper. I once wanted so much to ride to school, I rode to school in the bucketing rain. That shows that I really am set up for the job : )
