Students from all over Australia participated in the ‘Great Veggie Crunch’ last term. Notre Dame was one of the many schools involved on Tuesday, 4 September, trying to make the loudest possible crunch sound we could with our fantastic veggies. I would like to thank Caroline from ‘Belmont Community Vibes’ for donating some fantastic fresh veg for the kids and staff to eat on the day. It’s a great way to come together as a school and remind ourselves of the importance of the crunch ’n’ sip program and a healthy lifestyle. It’s fair to say we definitely were crunching like crocodiles by testing out the new crunch ‘o’ meter app online (picture below). Your Move prizes were also handed out to students showcasing healthy attitudes and behaviours and answering healthy lifestyle questions. I would also like to thank the fantastic crunch helpers and the year 4 group who helped with handing out plates of veggies to classes, setting up for the event and handing out prizes.

Notre Dame will be looking to get ready to go for 2019 with the use of parents and students to assist with the Your Move events for next year. We will be conducting a survey towards the end of the term to assist with planning for next year.

Love the photo Brett! It looks like a very well organised activity - great to see you linking active travel and YM in with healthy eating. You received 25 activity points for promoting active travel and YM plus 10 bonus points for giving us all the details. I have relinked the story to "Run a simple activity" as the "Class Competition" activity is intended to be for a competition between classes to increase their levels of active travel.

Make sure you let us know about any planning session you have for next year and/or the results of your first survey. Remember - the more stories you post about your YM activities, the more points you get!
