Travelwise Week – next week

Every year we have fun during Travelwise week, but this year is extra special, and we have a few additional events, as part of our on-going 10 year celebrations. As a school we celebrate being Travelwise because it keeps us healthy and fit, looks after the environment, and keep us safe around school with less traffic congestion. Win, win, win! Please make sure you check the timetable below, (or the paper copy coming home in bags today) so you know what is happening daily. Key Points are:

Big Walk to School: 8am Monday morning. Students (and parents etc) meet either at Highfield Reserve, or the Skate Park (behind the Tennis Club), and walk to school together. There are spot prizes and house cards for all walkers. 

Daily Walking Numbers & House Cards: Just like our “Walking Wednesdays”, but EVERY day next week. Any child who comes to school a travelwise way gets a number for afternoon spot prize draws & a house card. See the Travelwise Monitors outside the hall when you arrive.

Scooter & Helmet Raffle Tickets: on sale daily outside the library. Drawn at Friday’s Assembly.

Colouring Competition: Daily in the library at lunchtime, run by our Head Librarians.

Staff “Guess the Baby Photo” Competition: Classes will go through this with their teachers

Easter Egg Hunt: We used to do this when our school was little! House Captains will run a hunt for hidden eggs with their houses. Eggs will then be evenly shared. PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOUR CHILD CANNOT HAVE SMALL CHOCOLATE EGGS, SO WE CAN PROVIDE AN ALTERNATIVE

Beach Clean & Celebration: more information will come home about this on Monday
