Celebrating & Farewelling Our 2019 Team.

Arlene Yates
Warnbro Primary School

This morning I had the pleasure of talking at Assembly about our YM Team. I started by saying that I had had the privilege of working with some special young people who comprised the YM Team. Following is part of that presentation:

It has been another wonderful year of wonderful ACHIEVEMENTS:

  • Our EOY H-U was 53% Active Transport, that means more than HALF of you were using AT to come to school.
  • The Team achieved Double Platinum by week 4 of Term 4 (the first & only school to do so this year)
  • The Team earned 500 points to fund 2 classes attending the Constable Care Safety School facility in Maylands. Then, by unlocking a Schools Connecting Grant, 2 more classes were also able to attend at NO cost to the school or parents. I'd like to thank Ms Riley for completing the paperwork required for the Grant.
  • The Team was a presenting school at the first ever CoR/YM Showcase.
  • Beside this, the Team ran Star Cards, presented each fortnight at Assembly & assisted with AT events throughout the year.

To say the Team has been BUSY is an understatement, but I am told it has also been FUN! And that is the case for Ms Riley & me, too.

THANK YOU, Team, for a fabulous year. It has been an honour & privilege to work with you.

We would now like to acknowledge our Team by presenting the 2019 YM Certificates.

We wish these amazing young people well in their future endeavours. Some embark on high school next year, others will complete Year 6 in 2020. Whatever they do & wherever they go, we wish them the very best.

Wow reading this story makes me so happy and feel so proud of what a group of dedicated students can achieve in one school year! When you consider that the national average for AT to primary school is only 33%, Warnbro PS is achieving amazing results and making a wonderful contribution to not only your school but to the entire community. Well done :)

You have been TOLD it was fun? I'm pretty sure you had some part in making it fun Arlene! Another amazing year for Warnbro and YM - thanks for sharing. You have received 25 points for doing the assembly item and 15 points for making it a celebration of your team's efforts and achievement of Double Platinum level. Have a great break and see you in 2020 if not before!
