Now with all those weekend forecasts of gale-force winds, GSG families were a little nervous hoping the nasty weather wouldn't arrive a day early... and lucky us, today was yet ANOTHER glorious walk to school event under a clear blue cloudless sky! 

It was a great turn out to Walk Safely to School Day today, with both Middle and Senior School Leaders joining in and handing out the TravelSmart walk to school stickers to the Junior School students as we started the walk. Thanks to the boarders from Flinders Lodge cycling all the way to join us too!

This year we had special guests along on the forest walk with both Carl Beck - the TravelSmart Officer from the City of Albany and Deborah Clark from the office of Rick Wilson MP joining us.

And in the home stretch to school, we were serenaded by the wonderful Geoff Waldeck, GSG music teacher and local musician, strumming his guitar from a fence post on the side of the path. A great addition to the morning walk!

On arrival at school, students were welcomed with a cup of hot chocolate and fresh muffins provided by the library staff. We are truly blessed to have such great support for all our TravelSmart activities from staff, parents and students - our whole school community!
