Term 3 is our busiest term of the year. To add to all the hype our Your Move initiative is running a few competitions across the school to promote and educate our students about walking, riding and scooting safely to school. To start it off, Footprint Friday will continue to run- each Friday our faction captains and school cleaner are handing out raffle tickets at the entrances of our school for students who are walking, riding or scooting to school. These raffles tickets are then placed in a Footprint Friday tub and three winners are drawn throughout the day to receive a Your Move prize. To keep our students motivated to choose active travel (even when the weather is not looking the best) we have made another big prize draw. Every entry submitted into the tub for Footprint Friday will then be carried over into another grand prize draw. On Friday Week 9, 1 lucky winner will be drawn from the grand prize tub to receive a massive Your Move prize pack valued at $200. To get the word out to our community about this competition we published the information in our school newsletter. But wait, that's not all for this term ! we are also running some classroom competitions. Kindy to Pre- Primary - colouring in competition - we are using a colouring in page from the following website https://elementarysafety.com/colouring-section/coloring-bicycle-safety ( It is an American site, however the colouring in pages have great messages on them) We have chosen the follow the street signs and walk across the road picture, as this is something our students need to work on. Our Year 1-3 students will be designing a poster to Promote Foot print Friday - Each winning entry will receive a Your Move prize and have their poster placed around the school. Finally our year 4-6 students will be designing a brand new banner four our school, as our last banner is looking a little sad. Every classroom will choose a winner for their allocated competitions - All winners will receive a Your Move prize ! Mrs Ham's prize shelf is fully stocked and ready to go. An overall banner winner will also be selected- this banner will then be sent away to be created and displayed in our bike racks. Please see copies of communication about our events below.
