As usual, it has been a busy start to the term, however thanks to the Dept of Transport, we have been able to get a head start on our Your Move planning for the year by taking up the offer of the half day relief payment. A wonderful initiative and one that is very much appreciated!

As a result, we have been able to plan for the year and begin work on our first event, our Ride2School day. Posters have been created for each classroom to promote the event along with a newsletter article and a to-do list for both staff and students. Further discussion with staff will take place at our next staff communication meeting to ensure all are aware of the event day along with our plan for the year and our Student Council will make daily announcements to promote the event in the lead up to the big day. Prizes have been ordered from Your Move using our reward points along with vests for our student helpers to wear on the day.

The planning session enabled us to reflect on our achievements and challenges from last year and to plan accordingly, exploring options to promote and increase active transport to school and possible barriers we may face this year with our school undergoing an upgrade later in the year! One of our main priorities is to expand our successful Walking School Bus which began last year from 3 days to 4 days as well as increase the number of students accessing it. Planning is also underway for our Constable Care Safety School excursion, made possible through our Gold accreditation received last year! We can`t wait to make the most of this wonderful opportunity and encourage more of our students to take up riding to school as an option for active travel.

Welcome back to Your Move for 2020! It is rewarding to hear that the planning relief facilitated such a great session Valerie. I was just thinking about your WSB last week, so I'm happy to hear that you hope to expand it. Your reflection on your goals and getting a plan together has earned you 25 points plus a bonus 10 for sharing so much information. I'm looking forward to reading about your big day on Friday!
