You can change the world by changing your trip to school!
What a busy day! First we arrived at school early so we were ready to acknowledge children coming to school in a TravelSmart way by giving them a sticker and raffle ticket.
After the bell went we drew 21 luckly raffle tickets and prepared to distribute prizes at recess. Then we went to all the classes to do the post Hands Up survey.
We made an announcement over the PA about the winning raffle tickets and where to collect the prizes. The most popular prize…Continue

The weather is fining up and holidays are fast approaching great weather for checking our bikes fixing them up and going for a ride!
Our Year 5 TravelSmart team met again today to prepare for World Car Free Day on Thursday 22 September. We prepared our TravelSmart raffle prizes by selecting which items would be 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes. There are seven prizes in each group and they include helmets, apple slicers, bike pumps and bells, shoe laces and lots more.
We also worked out who was going to stand at which school gate to hand out raffle tickets to students who arrived in a TravelSmart way.
Last Thursday we held our term 3 walk to school day. It was a good turn out considering the chilly mornings we have been having. We had three groups leaving different locations, along with people walking from their own points. We gathered around in the undercover area once at school and again IGA Beaumaris provided lovely fresh fruit for all participants. We look forward to term fours walk to school day.
On Friday our Junior Green Team hosted out 5th Footprint Friday event. This event is becoming a regular thing that more and more students and staff are getting involved in, which is amazing to see. We started off the morning with breakfast at breakfast club and gave out lots of raffle tickets with the winners drawn at lunch time and called out over the PA to come and collect their prizes after school. Today we had our Junior Green Team put the hands up surveys in registration folders and…Continue
At Applecross, we've been running the Walk to School Wednesday campaign in the past term. It happens every Wednesday of the week in the morning. The Travel Smart to School ambassadors start setting up at about 8:15 am and pack up at about 8:45 am. During the last few weeks, it has been raining so not many people walked to school. Thankfully, this week, it didn't rain so we got many cards clipped today. It is so great to see many people joining the campaign and getting healthy. Let's keep…Continue

During Term 3 our year 3/4 students participated in a bike education session. The students learnt a lot about bike and helmet safety. I have attached a small interview that the students constructed after the workshop along with some great photos of the experience. The students all had a great time and took away some great skills and knowledge.
The day was cold but those colourful WWU entries & the interest showed in them by passers-by made it much warmer! Plus any excuse to promote TSTS!
Getting everything ready.
The evening was used to do a bit (or a lot) of…Continue
Some of our WWU Winners with the TS Team.
The icing on the cake is seeing the happy smiles on everyone's faces. We used a backdrop of a portion of the entries to further brighten everything! (As you can see…Continue
We started our competition by all sitting down & brainstorming on how to start, how to promote it, the images to use, who will judge what, when it will start & finish, putting up the display & how the entries will be collected.
First we spread all of the entries (group by group) on tables so we could see them all at once.
Then we selected 10-12 that we liked. Next we chose the 3 that were the most eye-catching, colourful & creative. We…Continue
We did the WWU because it is cold & some people are thinking it is too cold to walk to school, but you can still be active, no matter the weather. All parts of our colouring-in competition had something to do with Active Transport and the cold weather. We did have a bit of a hard time with the pictures but we ended up getting through it.
