Wow what an amazing day we've had at the Gary Holland Centre today!!! Our team had an inspiring day at the Rockingham Your Move forum led by the Rockingham Council, Dept of Transport and the Your Move team. We were on the edge of our seats while listening to the motivating guest speaker Dr Jane Gevese. Dr Jane provided us with many confidence boosting hacks, tips on getting your point across, learning how to strike a power pose and turn your mindset from 'unlucky' to 'lucky' with an abundance of positive strategies.

Our team of Your Move faction captains in year 6 were one of 3 schools to present to over 60 participating students, teachers, parents and local government officials. They were confident and full of joy whilst on stage explaining how we have started the Your Move program at our school.

We learnt many new ideas from schools such as Warnbro Primary school and Baldivis Secondary College and we hope to run similar events as theirs, such as Wheelie Wednesdays and or Footprint Fridays. Watch this space for what's install next at St Bernadette's.

A huge, thank you to Your Move and Penny McCall for organising a fantastic collaborative event. We feel connected and ready to tackle term 4 with new ideas on how to reduce traffic congestion and get our kids moving more and more. We hope our tips and examples have helped encourage other non-participating schools in our area to join the fabulous Your Move program.
