It’s been a bit of time in-between stories with the business of term 1. Notre Dame had a fantastic year last year, with one of it’s main goals to improve parents' and the community's knowledge of safe routes to school and increasing physical activity. We also implemented plenty of events throughout the year to encourage students and parents to take an active travel option. We’ve had bike ed sessions for our Year 3 students, footprints and stop signs on our paths leading to school and a school access guide created for our parents. With all this we received our first ever platinum funding, this was a fantastic achievement and I would like to specifically thank Carol-Ann and her team in helping provide more plantinum funding grants for schools.
With these grants we have had a bike repair station with signage installed on the school grounds, with our Year 6 group currently working on descriptions students can understand to use the tools on the station, as well as a video to share with students and parents.
We also received funding for another Year 3 bike ed program that will be commencing in Term 2, as well as bike checks for those students before the program commences.
We are looking forward to another year of improvement so we can have students more consistently taking active travel options and working with parents in creating their own ‘Walking School Bus’.
