Congratulations to TB3.1 Year 4 for walking their way around Australia first. Needless to say the students were very proud of their efforts. Enjoy your Your Move goodies. Last week our Your Move team completed our final hands up survey and we are very pleased with our results. We compared our first survey in February to our final and these were our findings 5% increase in walking, 20% increase in cycling and 8% decrease in driving. We also had our final meeting for the year. Our team had a chance to discuss some highlights from the year and made some recommendations for next year. Our students really enjoyed Footprint Friday and Dress up your bike day. They also came up with some awesome suggestions for next year. 1) Have a most active travel award to present to a winning class each junior and senior assembly 2) Juniors vs seniors (prize to be given to the most active group) 3) Promote Walk Around Australia better next year 4) keep Footprint Friday and Dress up your bike day 5) Possibly try the Your Move star cards- use completed star cards to go into the draw to win a big prize. Moving forward next year we also hope to introduce a breakfast club, this will be run in conjunction with our NQS committee. We also hope to have our own section in the school newsletter to keep parents more updated with up coming events. Footprint Friday is also scheduled to finish Friday next week. It has been an amazing year for Lakelands Primary and we can't wait to continue in 2018.

What a fantastic year from Lakelands and congratulations to the competition winners! You've included a lot in this post, but the bulk of it relates to the 'Annual Reflections on Achievements' activity which has earned you 15 points. I've also added 10 points for including so much detail in the story, 10 for reporting on the active travel percentages, another 10 for offering student reflection on 2018 and plans for 2019!
