Hands Up Survey complete

Sue Ashworth

Today we completed our Term 1 Hands Up Survey with our 19 classes. It was pleasing to note that we have had a 2% decrease in driving since the end of 2019 and a 6% increase in cycling which is fantastic. While there has been a 6% decrease in walking, perhaps some of those are now scooting or riding to school. Public transport is only 1% of our data.

We are continuing with our Footprint Friday initiative this year which will hopefully result in further increases in active transport to and from school.

In addition to our regular Footprint Friday rewards tomorrow, it is National Ride to School Day for which we are having a breakfast and giveaways to riders and two mechanics from People on Bicycles will be checking bikes for forty lucky students.

Welcome back for 2020 and the new decade Sue! It sounds like you have been busy in the background this term with your FPF and R2SD ready to blastoff on Friday. Your survey would have automatically earned you 50 points when you uploaded it, and now I'm giving you another 10 for your discussion (great to see people are still active after the summer holidays!) . Make sure you let us know how FPF goes (for 90 points this term) on Friday and of course I'll be looking out for your R2SD rundown! See you at the end of the week.
