Mary's Mount Primary School's stories

Your Move Forum April 2019

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.

Our first ever Hands Up survey!

We conducted our first ever whole school Hands Up survey today with our students at Mary's Mount Primary School. It's great to gather this data. It was a little surprise to see how many of our students travel to school by car. We will be working towards encouraging more of our students to become a little more active this year by possibly setting a regular active travel day.


Many of our little Pre Primary students put their "hands up" after being asked who came to school in the car this morning.

Good morning Your Move members,

At Mary's Mount Primary School we are on the move to improve how we travel to and from school. We are a small single stream, Catholic Primary School in the leafy green Perth Hills catering for approximately 250 healthystudents from 3 year old Kindy to Year 6. We have a large catchment area and are looking forward to finding ways to encourage our students to be more active.

Our Pre Primary class from 2018 walked to the local park with a group of helpful parents and teachers to have a picnic and play.

We are very excited to be starting the Your Move program and we are currently gathering as much information as we can. We are lucky to have two very committed parents accompanying me next week to the Your Move Schools Forum for 2019.

Best of luck to everyone in your journey with encouraging your communities to be more active.
