Last Friday May 17, was Walk Safely To School Day. Lakelands PS continued to run their Footprint Friday activity and as an added extra, students received a raffle ticket and a Walk Safely To School sticker. It was great to see the buzz and talk about active transport around the school. There were lots of happy faces showing off their stickers. Mrs Ham talked to our Pre- Primary and Year 1 students about safe travel to and from school at our school values assembly in the morning. After lunch three winners were chosen to receive a Your More prize for Footprint Friday. Congratulations to Mollie- Mar, Katlyn and Seamus who were this weeks winners.

Thanks Amy - does your Footprint Friday run every Friday? How does it work exactly? I've given you 90 points for FF as the "Regular Active Travel Day" activity - did you know that you can get 90 points each term if you give an update? Also your WS2SD event earnt you 40 points. It's great to hear about the buzz that is happening!

Sounds like a very successful Walk Safely to School Day combined with your regular Footprint Friday. It warms my heart to hear about the knock conversations that happen as a result of running these events and regular active travel days as you just know it leads to greater things and more behaviour change. Thanks for sharing Lakeslands PS.
