A huge THANK YOU to all the families that completed the survey. We are extending the survey for one more month! With the final prize draw to complete the parent survey.
We are busy working on a new form that will be easier for parents to complete. The previous PDF seemed to be a barrier. I would love to hear from more families. Watch this space when it goes live!
LAB Project – Tree obstruction on the street off Hinderwell Street
Thank you to the Your Move team and our Mayor for helping us keep our active travellers safe. When walking and riding, you can see all oncoming traffic and the large tree blocking the road has been cut away.
Staff CARPOOL CHALLENGE
Scarborough Primary School participated in our first carpool and active transport challenge to attend the professional learning day on the pupil free day - the 11th of October! Carpooling gave staff a chance to catch up socially along the way, especially after the school holidays. A couple of staff chose to ride their bikes to school, even though they knew it would rain! Our school principal took up the challenge and took public transport (bus and train) to get to school. She even incorporated walking as part of her daily steps for the day! We reduced the number of cars in our car park, and we are aiming for more staff to take part next time. Well-done to those staff members who took part in the challenge.

We will hold a Christmas parade so the students could show case their amazing Christmas Creations! All students from Kindy to year 6 can participate in the competition. Prizes will be given for the best dressed wheels.
Active Travel 4 – Activities in the pipeline
There are some activities that are in the pipeline that will be using active travel by taking the bus, walkabout and some other things we don’t want to give away that will help us to earn points before the end of the year. Stay tuned!
Stay Active! Warmer weather will definitely help us to choose to leave the car at home.
