"Where learning makes a difference..."

 


Join a Walking School Bus!

Keen to make school drop off/pick up easier and stress free?  

Meet other local parents and get some fresh air and exercise?  

Have your kids arrive to school energised and ready to start their days learning?  

A walking school bus is a group of children who walk together to/from school with parent supervisors along a set route.  Parents take turns and shouldn’t need to walk more than one day a week.  The other 4 days are free.

Albany School have two new routes running, come and give it a try!

Five W’s Poem by Josh P.

The Albany School boy

Excitedly biked to school

To beat the 8:30 bell

On Albany cycleway

To play with his friends happily

Acrostic Poem by Josh P.

Walk safely

Always look for cars

Listen before you cross

Keep yourself safe
