Choosing New Transport Troopers!

Joanna Webster
Lake Gwelup Primary School

At a recent Your Move meeting, we decided it was time to choose new Transport Troopers for 2021!

Our current TT’s began in 2019 with City of Stirling’s Your Move Student Leadership Conference, but they are about to graduate. We have decided to choose Year 4 students who can carry this journey throughout next year and beyond. 😊

Year 4 students were super keen to be Transport Troopers, so they all wrote persuasive texts explaining why they were the best person for the job! We then chose 10 Transport Troopers who will be mentored by our current TT’s throughout Term 4.

We had our first meeting with the new and old TT’s yesterday and thought up some plans for Term 4:

- painting the local paths using our Your Move stencils

- another Active Travel day (we are thinking Wednesday)

- a colouring in competition

- another Christmas themed Dress Up Your Bike Day

We also LOVE Warnbro Primary’s Walk Around Australia idea!

BUT... the first order of businsss was getting our new Troopers to help out with Slow Bike Race Day. 😊 They monitored the finish line, and handed out prizes and icy poles!

Great work team!

Hi again Joanna. It sounds like you had a really productive first meeting with your new wave of Transport Troopers. Great to hear they got stuck into helping out right away at your Slow Bike Race event. I'm really looking forward to reading your updates next term!
