BRISBANE CITY COUNCIL GET ACTIVE PROGRAM Last Thursday evening, our school attended a special reception at Town Hall where MSS was announced as a successful participant from 2017 in The Active School Travel (AST) program facilitated by the Brisbane City Council. The program offers Brisbane primary schools a suite of free resources, tools and incentives to enable students, parents and teachers to leave the car at home and actively travel to school. It's all about creating healthier, more active students and parents, greater road safety awareness among students and families, and safer streets and reduced traffic congestion at the school gate.The award-winning program promotes road safety and sustainable and healthy travel modes such as walking, cycling, scootering, carpooling and public transport. It is specially tailored to each school with a dedicated officer, passports for each child, rewards and incentives, personalised active travel maps and much more. We look forward to providing you with more information about the program in the coming months.
