2015 Reflections.

As the year draws to a close, I am taking some time to reflect on what we have learned this year. We ran three Classroom competitions throughout the Winter, which were moderately successful. I have learned some lessons for next time:

Where possible children should be marked if absent, perhaps by the Teacher or  Class parent rep if they are aware of absences.  As only Active Travellers go to mark against their name, those left blank were assumed to be car users and in fact may not have…

The Road to Handover.

What a predicament to be in! 6 places and more than double that putting their hands up to be  2016 TSers! So, STEP 1: an introduction by both Student and adult TSers, then an "application" to be completed and returned ASAP.

STEP 2:  read these and pick the best 6. Predicament 2: more than 6 sounded good! 

STEP 3: discussion with TS Team and selection made with  a contingency plan of a  "reserve list."

STEP 4: meet with all applicants and explain the HOW of selection and…
