Woodcroft was presented with TfLs highest Gold Award for the third year running on Monday 20th November. Two of our pupil Travel Ambassadors accepted the award on behalf of the school at a presentation ceremony held at The Camden Centre, London. The STARS award is recognition of our outstanding achievements promoting healthy travel.
A report by Julia, Y6 Travel Ambassador
We had an interesting expedition on Monday and set off to the ceremony using the Northern Line from Burnt Oak. Unfortunately, due to points failure we had to change trains and our journey took a little longer than expected. When we arrived at the Camden Centre there were lots of workshops that were great fun . My favourite was when we competed in quizzes about road safety against other schools. We also found out about some very good ideas that we would like to put into practise at Woodcroft. Collecting our Gold STARS Award was very exciting and we felt very proud representing our school. It was a really great day.
