Introducing the LGPS Transport Troopers!

Joanna Webster
Lake Gwelup Primary School

Two weeks ago, Year 5 students at LGPS wrote persuasive letters expressing their interest in becoming a Transport Trooper! They will be our student leaders for the Your Move programme, working hard to get our community using active travel as the preferred transport to school. We have joined the City of Stirling's Living Green initiative this year and have been working hard to make our school more sustainable.

It was a tough selection process, but we managed to narrow it down to 10 passionate Year 5 students, who will continue their roles into Year 6 and form a sub section of our student sustainability leaders, the Gwelup Green Thumbs.

The first item on our agenda was the two-day Your Move student conference. We had our first meeting afterwards to generate an action plan. Next week we are conducting our first Hands Up survey and we will be speaking at the school board meeting next month!

Big things are coming. Watch this space...!
