This year, St Sebastian’s has been selected as one of 17 new schools joining Brisbane City Council’s Active School Travel (AST) program. Over the next three years, our school will receive a range of free resources, tools and incursions to enable active travel to and from school. Active Travel promotes clean and green, active and healthy school travel modes such as walking, cycling, carpooling and public transport. By leaving your car at home, at least one day a week on our active travel day, we can reduce traffic congestion at the school gate, improve road safety, create a cleaner environment, save money and improve our health and fitness. All students are encouraged to actively travel to school - walk, scooter, ride or carpool. A survey will be taken each Wednesday by teachers and provided to the Council. Each fortnight a certificate will be awarded to the class with the best Active School Travel result. The class winners of our Wednesday surveys are announced at Assembly and every fortnight a Star Class certificate will be awarded to a class that has been outstanding in their active travel to school.
