Trek 2 School Survey

Bob Hawke College

This week is National Walk to School Day! Bob Hawke College continues to demonstrate a commitment to getting more students walking, riding, and taking public transport to school. As part of this commitment, Bob Hawke College is participating in the TREK2School Study being led by Telethon Kids Institute and UWA in partnership with the WA Department of Transport! We’re excited for this opportunity for parents/carers and students to provide valuable information about traffic, safety, and parking at our school. This study gives a voice to students and parents about their experiences traveling to and from our school near places like Coghlan Road, Subiaco Road and Roberts Road. Students will be taking the surveys in their science classes at the end of the month. The survey asks questions about current modes of transport, preferred mode of transport, and a range of social and environmental factors related to walking, riding and taking public transport to and from school.

The school is looking forward to receiving comprehensive data about perceived barriers to walking, riding, and taking public transport to and from school specifically for Bob Hawke College. These results can be put to use in making it safer and easier for our students to travel to school. On a broader scale, our school is happy to be contributing to important research about active travel among secondary school students across Perth.

It sounds like an excellent project for the students to be participating in Anne. I'll be very interested to learn about the findings. Bob Hawke has earned 60 points for getting involved in this research and you have earned another 10 points for sharing all the details .
