What a great morning meeting up & walking (or riding) to school. The weather was just perfect. We were so busy handing out stickers & taking down names we forgot to get a photo!
Firstly, thank you to our guest walkers Deb Hamblin (CoR Deputy Mayor), Penny McCall & graduate Leila.
Here are the Team's thoughts on the day...We hosted 3 walks to school for NWS2SD last Friday. We went to the Guarded Crossings leading to our school & also one other popular spot. At Recess, we handed out fruit & veges & they went so fast. Chloe.
Milly added: We participated in NWS2SD last week & there were 3 stations the YM Team were at. We were at Currie St, Fairmile St & Kingsbridge Rd. 2 of the Team were at each spot. It was a good idea to choose the Guarded Crossings so that it's safe & normally they are very populated areas & are easy to find & recognise.
Miranda continued: I invited Penny to the walk I was hosting for NWS2SD. She arrived with Leila. Penny McCall is the Community Development Officer (Health & Well-being) at the City of Rockingham. I was glad that she was able to come along with Leila.
The best part of NWS2SD was seeing all the people walking to school or scootering, biking & skating. It made me very proud to know that people were using AT to get to school because I knew that we encouraged AT. Beau.
Ruby concludes: The most important thing for me was getting the message out to kids that in the long run using AT will pay off. I also wanted to show all the younger kids where the Guarded Crossings are.
Mentor's note: Lots of good thinking going on here. Makes my day when I ask for the Team's contribution & this is what is delivered. Thank you Team & WELL DONE!
