On Wednesday 17th of May we participated in the Walk Safely to School Day initiative. With the Support of staff and the parent community we were able to utilise the grant from the Rockingham Council (thank you) to provide smoothies and fresh fruit to the Primary School community when they arrived at school. The parent community was amazing, they had the kitchen running smoothly preparing all the smoothies with their production line of thermomixes. In hindsight, I probably should have taken more photos but I got caught up in the busyness of the morning.

We did see and increase in the number of students getting to school in an active way. It would have been interesting to have completed a second hands up survey to compare it to the original one.

The next step is to organise a RAC Little Legends incursion for the Pre-Kindy to Year 1 students.

Apologies for the back log of posts.

Thanks for bringing us up to date with your Walk to School Day event Meg. That kitchen sounds like an efficient operation! It's great that you had more kids using active transport even if you didn't manage a survey this time. Little steps work very well with YM! You earned 40 points for your big day.
