The newly appointed JTAs will be running the Golden Lock  every day so there is a chance to win a prize. Each day they will place the Golden Lock on a bike or scooter. Whoever receives the Golden Lock will go and find Miss Rickards and she will unlock your bike/scooter and they can choose a prize.

Useful Advice for actively travelling to school when we return.

Southampton City Mission Food Bank

The Kiddie Cones Have Arrived

The Junior Travel Ambassadors have been liaising with Hazel Agombar, the  School Travel Officer at Southampton City Council, to receive some Kiddie Cones to go outside our school to remind people not to park on the zigzags and to keep our children safe. They have arrived safe and sound, thank you Hazel. So many people have made positive comments about them and how eye catching they are, so fingers crossed they will help reduce the parking issues outside our school

Parking Advice Tickets

What a successful launch of the JTAs Parking Advice Tickets. They have handed out some Awesome Parking Tickets to lots of people who have parked thoughtfully away from the school gates. However, they have also had to hand out Parking Advice Tickets to people who are parked right outside the school gates, on the pavement or on the corner of Middle Road and Heath Road. As you are aware this is where there are two School Crossing Patrol Officers, who are there to make sure everyone crosses safely so it is really important  they can see the roads clearly and not have lots of parked cars near them. We all need to work together to make sure it is as safe as possible to walk to school and to be able to cross the road safely, Thank you to everyone that we spoke to when we handed out all the parking advice information, everyone was so polite. The Junior Travel Ambassadors are such a motivated team who are determined to make our pavements around are school as safe as possible. Well Done JTAs.

A massive thank you for all the harvest donations.  Southampton City Mission came and collected all the food and it will be put to really good use within the community.

Here is a very interesting BBC clip explaining one of the reasons why it is better to walk or cycle to school rather than use the car.

Walktober - Walking For Wellbeing

Walktober

For the month of October we are participating in Walktober.  The Walktober challenge is about walking to improve your wellbeing. We would encourage you to walk as much as possible during the month – to and from school and work, for example, but try to find other opportunities to walk too. Have a look at the Challenge cards that have been sent home.

Scooter Challenge - Monday 17th June to Friday 21st June

Yes it really is that time of year again! We have registered to participate in the Scooter Challenge again this year. So let's see if we can get as many children as possible scooting to and from school this week. Not only is it fun, great exercise but it all helps to reduce the pollution problem. Remember to scoot safely, always wear a helmet. The children were shown a scooter safety video last week but if you want to see it again just follow the link below:
