MLPS Presented with "Innovate" Award

Sharnie Stuart
Mount Lawley Primary School

On Wednesday a couple of representatives from MLPS's Traffic Management Group (TMG) and Principal Cavelle Monck attended the Your Move 2020 Awards. The awards were presented by the Hon. Rita Saffioti, Minister for Transport and Planning. MLPS won the "Innovate" category!

The TMG (consisting of parent volunteers) strives to encourage more walking, riding and cycling to and from school in a strategic and creative way. A couple of our greatest achievements to date is seeing an influx in children walking, scooting and riding bikes to much so that the bike racks are overflowing! Another huge win is having produced a Traffic Management Plan for the school. This plan provides traffic guidance, highlights safety matters around the school and showcases an annual calendar of events.

We are all so thrilled we won this award, it was unexpected. We take our hat off to the Your Move program & its very supportive team, as it's definitely making a positive impact on the MLPS school community!

Congratulations on your award Sharnie and the TMG! You certainly deserve the recognition. Excellent that your Principal was able to attend too. You have earned 50 points for attending the Awards morning. I also just gave you a 10 point bonus for your reflections. Did you know that if you post any pledges before Dec 14th you can still earn the 25 bonus points? See details here:
