Well, it’s that time of year again when our school seriously starts talking about walking!
The SRC has been busy working to raise awareness of Walk Safely to School Day. WSTSD asks that we all consider our transport habits and try to incorporate more walking as part of a healthy, active way to get around. Although walking all the way to school isn’t realistic for many of us, it’s quite easy to figure out how you can build a walk into your family’s daily routine.
You can teach your child the healthy habit of walking more by:
Walking with them the whole way to school
If they get the bus or train, walk past your usual stop and get on at the next stop
If you have to drive, park the car a few blocks away from the school and walk the rest of the way.
Regular exercise like walking with your child not only helps them (and you!) beat chronic problems like obesity, heart disease, behavioural and mental health issues and diabetes. It also gives you a great opportunity to teach your child safe ways to behave around roads and traffic.
Remember, Active Kids are Healthy Kids so get planning your own Walk Safely to School Day journey for Friday 17 May 2019! The SRC will be handing out stickers on the day for those choosing to participate in this great initiative!
PB for L - Term 2 Goal
As some of you who attended the merit certificate assembly on Friday will know, the school successfully completed the 10% towards the term 2 Positive Behaviour for Learning Goal. Also though, Mr Park revealed the goal which students will be working towards assuming they get the 100% goal. Last term it was a technology afternoon and for this term Mr Park announced last Friday that it would be a science day. Students will work in Peer Support groups and they will move around the school to different activities planned by each teacher. We will advise exactly which day this will take place on later in the term but suffice to say the staff are very excited about planning a series of science based activities.
Other news in PB for L is that from next week’s assembly, the SRC will be involved in a demonstration in assembly of good achievement of PB for L expectations. This means that the House Captains will now be responsible for leading the assembly.
