Team BOB Youth Out Loud – Positive Packs

Here at Team BOB (Back off Bullies) we are aiming to make a difference in bullying and family violence victims with our Positive Packs. The Positive Packs are BOB’s way of helping those in need of some support. Bullying can have a huge impact on our lives and Team BOB have provided some useful tips and resources for those who are experiencing bullying.

The Positive Packs contain:
– Quotes
– Services
– Stress Balls
– Tips to deal with bullying
– Colouring in activities
– Our picture story book

If you or your child would like a Positive Pack you can visit our website at www.bobbackoffbullies.weebly.com or visit Mr O’Shea’s classroom.
THESE PACKS ARE FREE!!!!
Hopefully we can help.

We Need Your Vote!

Last term, grade 5/6 students entered a design competition for Latitude – Bounce, Climb, Fly – for their new bungee wall. We are proud to announce that Luke P’s design has been shortlisted and now needs your vote to win the competition. If Luke’s design wins, the whole school will get a free excursion to Latitude!

We ask that everyone in our school heads to:

https://latitudeair.com/thinkdesignwin-vote/

and selects Luke’s design (you will need to enter a valid email address for the vote to count).

Let’s all get behind Luke and Beacy’s chances of winning!

Walk to School

Due to the inconsistency of the weather and number of students walking, the teachers will not be walking to school for the rest of Term Two. We will continue when the weather gets better in Term Three, however we still encourage parents and students to use our 3 safety drop off zones to walk to school.

Thank you

National Walk to School Day

On the 19th of May, it is the 18th year for the National Walk Safely to School Day (WSTDS). We will be leaving from O’Neil road and heading to school approximately 8:30am. We would love to see as many students possible attending this walk.

The objectives of WSTSD are:
• To encourage parents and carers to walk to school with primary school age children and reinforce safe pedestrian behaviour.
• To promote the health benefits of walking and help create regular walking habits at an early age.
• To ensure that children up to 10 years old hold an adult’s hand when crossing the road.
• To help children develop the vital road-crossing skills they will need as they become mature pedestrians.
• To reduce the car dependency habits that are being created at an early age and which will be difficult to change as children become adults.
• To promote the use of Public Transport.
• To reduce the level of air pollution created by motor vehicles.
• To reduce the level of traffic congestion.

Thank you for your support.
