TfL Stars Travel Award

Back to Latest News

At St Martin's, we are working towards our TfL STARS travel award.  Along with schools from across London, our School Travel Ambassadors were invited up to Transport for London headquarters for a training day to kick-start their project, Active Travel.  They adopted #WalkTheTalk as their slogan, created a timeline for the delivery of the project and pitched their ideas for activities we can do at school to promote active travel to a panel of experts.  The panel praised their slogan and their imaginative plans.  Our Youth Travel Ambassadors are now busy planning their launch assembly and how best to spend their £250 budget.  Days like this are a great opportunity to learn from professionals in the field of transport.

Reflecting on the event, Victoria in Year 7 said, "Being a travel ambassador means I can keep the community's environment clean."  Blessing in Year 8 added, "To me being a travel ambassador means that I am a leader and could potentially find a job in leadership. I also think it means to help shape the future and the world to make it more active and a better place environmentally. "

Look out for exciting projects coming up later this term and learn ways that you can take part in clean and healthy active travel.
