Welcome to the STAR group page!
STAR stands for School Travel Action Representatives.
We meet regularly and discuss issues around travelling to school.
We also plan and promote an Anti-Bullying Week called 'Friendship Week'
We also have a STAR noticeboard in the hall which is used to display photographs of STAR group events and reminds everyone about how we can travel to school in a healthy, sustainable and safe way. The yellow stars contain messages about travelling to school and how to be a good friend to others.
The STAR group is made up of one class representative from each of the Junior classes.
Look out for our 'BIKE IT BREAKFAST' events in the Summer Term.
Breakfast will be served in the hall and will include toast, muffins, crumpets, yoghurt and fruit.....along with water, milk, fruit juice and milkshake.
Look at some of our other projects that the STAR group have organised and promoted............
All our Year 2 children, and some children from the Junior classes have been involved in 'Learn to Ride' sessions led by Amanda Dufresne from SUSTRANS.
We would like to thank Amanda for her support and encouragement.
We have held regular 'Walk to School', 'Bling Your Bike' and 'Bike It Breakfast' events and had a fantastic 'Silly Socks Day' as well as 'Walk to School with a Friend Day'.
