Our wonderful community braved the chilly conditions and joined one of two walking school buses to promote National Walk Safely to School Day. Pre-Primary to Year 6 students were surveyed on their mode of transport to Woodland Grove on this day. 50% of the student population travelled safely to school using active transport. We even had our event recognised by Public education in Western Australia Facebook page.
Woodland Grove Primary School's stories
Friday 22nd March 2019 was Ride2School day at Woodland Grove Primary School. The bike racks were overflowing with bikes and scooters. During lunch time students who rode to school were allowed to complete an obstacle course designed by our student your move team. A Hands up survey was also completed with 37% of our student population coming to school on wheels and 20% of our student population walking to school.
Well done Woodland Grove! At our last assembly we celebrated gaining silver accreditation. In addition we promoted the Your Move program, encouraging our community to use Active transport as a method of getting to and from school.
At Woodland Grove Primary School communication about active travel is achieved through a variety of methods to our school community. Facts about the benefits of active transport to and from school are promoted regularly and special events such as walking school buses and bike weeks are held.
A number of students nominated to be part of the student team to help promote Active transport at Woodland Grove Primary School. The teams first task is to help plan and promote Bike week. Pictured are two team members with our Your Move sign and the recently achieved silver accreditation.
Thank you to the Woodland Grove Community who participated in our Walking School Bus on Friday 7th December 2018 to promote healthy living and active transport to and from school. Every classroom has been discussing the positive benefits active lifestyles have to our health.
Friday 23 March 2018 was National Ride to School Day. Woodland Grove Primary School encourages the school community to find alternative modes of transport to arrive and depart school instead of using a car. On this day a slow bike race was organised to promote cycling. The day was a huge success as the bike racks were crowded with bikes and scooters.
Friday May 18 was National Walk to School Day. A Walking School Bus was organised as a mode of transport to arrive at school. Students, Staff and Parents walked together in a safe orderly manner to school. All involved had a lot of fun, including Chilli-Bean (School Wellness Dog).
