White Gum Valley Primary School held another Walk/Ride to School Day last Friday - the second one for the term.
Even though it was raining, 12 students rode and 85 walked all or part of the way to school. This is around 1/3 of the school population - which, given the wintery conditions, was impressive!
When the riders/walkers reached the school, they entered a free raffle to win Your Move umbrellas (timely given the weather!)
The Your Move Ambassador Team distributed 'Walk Safely to School Day' tattoo transfers, and students enjoyed a snack consisting of fruit and rice cakes.
The event was utilised to explore related themes of community. Activities included a focus on friendship with sheets asking students to fill out a post it note in the following areas:
What is another name for NICE? [Thoughtful, kindness, kind, friendly, helpful, appreciate.]
How can you help someone? [Play with them, ask them if they are okay if they are upset, being a friend, stop someone for being mean, ask them if they need help with something, help someone by finding them a toy to play with, help fix up their bike if it is broken.]
Who is your favourite person and why? [My friends as they are always understanding, my friend because she is so cool, the Dockers.]
Draw an interesting face!
The Principal's Update in the School Newsletter outlined the success of the event.
