The threat of rain didn’t deter 60% of White Gum Valley Primary School students, who took to the pavement for National Walk to School Safely day.
Some students who lived far from the school organised for their parents to park at local parks, so they could walk from there.
Students were greeted at the school with a free raffle in the shape of a giant foot! They were also provided ‘National Walk to School Safely’ temporary tattoos, and a nutritious refuelling snack of fruit and wholemeal breadsticks with cream cheese.
A footprint card was provided for students to write what the word 'healthy' meant to them, in ten words or less. The card was then pinned up for students to read at recess.
Some of the statements penned by students included:
… that you exercise every day and eat vegetables and fruit.’
… to be fit and happy, good natured and joyful.’
… fit, strong and smart.’
… to be here and enjoy the moment.’
… staying fit and having fun.’
… to have exercise and have a healthy diet.’
… eating good food.’
… that you are strong.’
