Youth Travel Ambassador Active Travel Week
It was great to finally put all of our planning and ideas into action during the Youth Travel Ambassador Active Travel Week.
Throughout the week, there were a variety of activities that students could participate in both in and outside of the classroom.
In the classrooms, tutors were provided with an assortment of resources, including quizzes, an oyster wallet design competition and a whole tutor walking challenge. Every tutor group was encouraged to contribute in the intercommunity activities throughout the week during tutor time.
We are collating all the entrees and the overall winning tutor and community will be awarded their prizes in the autumn term assembly.
Outside of the classroom, five students from each community were invited to volunteer to represent their community in a five minute physical walking and cycling challenge. This took place in the new gym and inside the college grounds during break and lunch times every day for each community.
Well done and thank you to all the students who gave up their free time to participate in the activities on behalf of their communities.
Over three mornings and afternoons during peak travel times, the YTA students delivered their parking information tickets to drivers of vehicles dropping off their child, parking and or idling along Corelli road near to the college gates.
The YTA students were well prepared, they were clearly visible with their high-viz jackets and each student participating was supervised by PCOs from the Royal Borough of Greenwich. The students did a fantastic job; they were polite, friendly and were able to explain clearly why they were promoting active travel, emphasising the many benefits active travel brings to our health, wellbeing, plus our environment.
