Green foot kicking goals at assembly

Lindi Harding
St Augustine's School

Throughout Term 2, at each of our assemblies, we kept up our tradition of presenting the 'Green Foot' trophy to the class with the smallest travel carbon footprint. The trophy, a 3D printed foot, is lasting well, considering it has been in circulation as an interclass prize for the last 18 months.

During the lead-up to each assembly, Your Move Student Leaders conduct a spontaneous hands up survey, determining the class with the highest percentage of students who walked, rode, scooted, or skated to school. The top three classes are announced by the Student Leaders at assembly in reverse order, creating an atmosphere of suspense and excitement!

In this assembly in Week 5, the Year 4 class were the winners! They get to display the foot in the classroom until the next assembly and they are also awarded 10 minutes of extra playtime at lunch.

The Green Foot and extra play time is a coveted prize, and this activity which provides consistent messaging and rewards team work is a big part of the active travel culture at St Augustine's School.

Great news that the green foot is lasting the distance and, along with the extra play time, is a valued reward 😊. Thanks for your Term 2 update on this inter-class competition. You have earned 60 points plus 10 for the story details.
