Today I had a chance to meet up with our Mentally Healthy coordinator at East Butler Primary School. Dani is a keen ambassador for the Act, Belong, Commit Program and runs the mentally healthy programs here at East Butler. Dani has been responsible for creating programs to suit the needs of our students and create lessons which foster the student mental health development. We have come together to merge the two programs and work together to encourage positive physical habits for students on a daily basis.

We have organised to meet up twice a term to implement new, fun and engaging ways to keep kids actively coming to school. Today we had a chance to sit down for a meeting and plot ideas into the term planner for the remainder of Term 1 and into Term 2. I'm really looking forward to implementing some of the fantastic ideas we have planned!

I love it! Yes, in my opinion (as well as in all the literature, I know), Active Travel has such a positive impact on mental health. It is really nice to see that you and Dani have been able to sit down together to plot out some activities for the first half year. This has earned you 15 points!
