Earlier in the year students at Mosman Park PS eagerly participated in a Ride 2 School day. Supported by the P&C and by school staff, students and parents were encouraged to ditch the car and instead make their way to school by bike or scooter. Almost half of the school's 400 students rode their bikes or scooters and were welcomed with fresh fruit donated by the local Coles, as well as 'valet' bike parking organised by the older students.

The students were asked to identify hazards on their way to school and this information was shared with the local council. In order to make the journey safer the School has applied for a Children's Crossing on one of the busiest streets. We expect that to be installed early next year. This will make parents and students feel more confident about riding their bikes.

The Year 6 school leaders have also proposed to fund-raise, in partnership with the P&C, to install safe storage areas and bike racks around the school.

Year 6's enjoy Public Transport Incursion

This story is related to Write your first story

On Monday, 10th December, the Year 6 students at Mosman Park Primary School participated in a 'Get On Board' incursion. The following report has been provided by Year 6 student, Frankie.

The Year 6's had a very enjoyable and informative incursion provided by Transperth. They came to our school because a lot of us will be using public transport when we go to high school next year and we thought it would be good to learn more about transport options such as buses, trains and ferries. The presenter informed us about things NOT to do - like going on train tracks, things that you HAVE to do - like tagging on and off, and things that would save money. Overall we really appreciated learning about Transperth and using public transport.
