2019 Your Move Showcase

On 3 September 2019 9 local Rockingham schools came together to learn more about Your Move at the first ever Your Move Showcase. Local Your Move Schools Warnbro PS, St Bernadette’s Catholic College, Baldivis Secondary College and Charthouse PS formed a working group to bring together this event with the support of the Your Move Schools team.

Students learned about how to get started on their Your Move journey, how to plan an effective event and how to design an awesome logo for their school.

Students also participated in a fantastic presentation from Dr Jane Genovese-‘How to become an effective agent of change’.

The event resulted in 3 new Your Move Schools in Rockingham. The team are looking forward to building on this event in 2020 and getting more schools involved.

The Rockingham Autumn Centre hosted an E-Bike, Trike and Scooter Expo from 9am - 12pm this morning! The Centre Manager Brett McDonald said the main aim was to educate and engage the City's Seniors in active transport options so that they can alleviate the congestion that occurs in the over-used car park. Cycling Without Age also attended with their Trishaws providing many of the Club members with a relaxing 10 minute ride through HMAS Warramunga Park. The expo was open to the entire community, with many young parents and community members in attendance, learning and trialling everything from E-Bikes to self-folding scooters! Huge thanks to all the local and Perth-based providers that offered their time in making the event a success!
