Walk Safely to School Day was another successful event for us. The P&C organised a delicious breakfast buffet using a grant from the City of Rockingham. Students who walked to school were able to enjoy something for breakfast. We had 239 students use active transport on this day as recorded by one of our Year 5 classes. They incorporated this activity into their Maths lessons which was fantastic. We also ran a raffle for all students who used active transport to get to school. The winners were given a prize selected from a backpack, bike lock, bike bell, water bottle or a pen. Winners were announced over the PA to promote the event and their names listed in the newsletter.
