Tankersley Gold celebration event

Wednesday 3rd October

Dear Parents and carers,

We are very proud to announce, that we have been awarded the Gold Modeshift Stars award, for our hard work and dedication to improving road safety, at Tankersley. This is a fantastic achievement for our school, as we are the first school in Barnsley, to be awarded the Gold star. 

To achieve this award, we have consistently held road safety activities for our pupils and pupils have also changed how they travel to school. Last year 43% of pupils travelled by car. This is now only 16%. A change of 27%, to active sustainable travel. Well done Tankersley!

To celebrate this achievement, we are having a Gold celebration event, on Weds 3rd October, which will be attended by the Mayor Councillor Steve Green.

In the morning, pupils will be treated to ‘golden’ performances in the hall and can arrive in non-uniform, in a yellow or golden outfit.

Normal lunch options are not available on this day, as the Catering staff are providing a ‘golden’ buffet lunch. Pupils have the option to choose the buffet lunch or bring their own packed lunch. Please print and complete the reply slip below and return to your class teacher by Monday 17th September.

There is also a raffle , for a brand new scooter and helmet. Tickets £1, will be on sale in the hall, every morning 8.50-9.00 from Monday 17th September, until Tuesday 2nd October.

South Yorkshire Modeshift STARS celebration

We would like to say thank you for attending the 2018 South Yorkshire Modeshift STARS celebration event in July. We hope you enjoyed it and found it a good mix of useful and entertaining. Well done for gaining your National Modeshift STARs Accreditation, we hope the event has inspired you to continue next year. 

An extra big thank you goes to all the schools who presented at the event. This isn’t an easy thing to do and we were very impressed by all the pupils involved and think they did an excellent job of sharing just some of the great work you are all doing across the county. It is massively appreciated and really helps to make the event fresh, interesting and relevant – Thank you!

I have attached a couple of photos of the event including the one of your school with the Lord Mayor Of Sheffield. The files are quite large so may come through separately. Please feel free to share your success on social media using the #modeshiftstars @SY_STARSAwards.

As always the team is here to help you, please do get in touch if you have any questions or would like some advice and help in reaching the next level of your Modeshift STARs accreditation journey.

Kind regards, 

Kat,
