What a great morning it was for us on Tuesday 2nd April, at the Your Move Forum. One of our enthusiastic, active parents accompanied me for the morning to the City at the Department of Transport. There, we listened to two very informative and interesting guest speakers.
Kerry Logan from Nature Play Australia shared with us valuable information about the importance of play for children. It was quite alarming to hear about the decline in exercise and active children in our societies world wide.
We also listened to Emma from North Morley Primary School talking about her inspiring story at her school, how they set up and have been successfully running their walking school bus.
After a very informative morning we are keen to get started on organising our own walking school bus at Mary's Mount Primary School and will start informing, encouraging and inspiring other parents to get involved.
Thank you very much David and Carol-Ann for a great morning.
