School Website Information

Maria Clapsis

This information has been put on our school website to enable all families to know how the Travel Smart (Your Move) operates.

The Travel Smart team meet with me in B4 every Monday at 10.45. During this time we plan what will happen during the term and work out what will be presented at the assembly.

The team gather information by going around the school to each class. They record each child who walked or rode to school on that day. The child’s name is then written on a ticket (during a Monday meeting session) and is put into our raffle box. At each assembly one ticket is drawn out and the lucky winner keeps the Golden Sneaker in their classroom until the next assembly. The winner also gets to choose a prize. Information is gathered randomly throughout the year. Children are encouraged to keep walking or riding to school to increase their chance of winning a prize.

Congratulations to Jack for being the latest winner of the Golden Sneaker.

At the beginning and end of each year, I send a summary of our school data to the Your Move Travel Smart officers at the Department of Transport.

I blog on the Your Move website and am awarded points. I can then use these points to obtain prizes that are used for the raffles or competitions during the year.

Hi Maria, there is so much information in your story that I'm hoping I've got it all right! I've given you points for starting a new YM team (60), having a regular active travel day (90) and for your regular reward of the Golden Sneaker (25). How often do you have your regular day for active travel - is it every Monday? Do you know that you can get points each term for letting us know how your campaign is going and also for updating us on any particular planning sessions?

You can also get points each term for letting us know about the assembly items you have.
