2022-2023 in review

Sophie Baker
City of Wanneroo

What a year for walking, scooting and wheeling! We are so impressed by the dedication to Your Move from our Your Move School Champions and their students we hope this enthusiasm continues, roll on 2024! 🚲🚶

The City has grown from 5 Your Move Schools to 24 Your Move Schools. We have celebrated by officially opening three new shared paths, walked/ wheeled with our schools on National Walk Safely to School Day and National Ride 2 School Day, held planning and information Sessions as well as delivered Kick Start Your Walk 2 School Funding. We have attended board meetings and P&C meetings, Connecting Schools grant kick off sessions and many introduction to the Your Move program meetings.

Five schools in the City of Wanneroo were successful in attaining the Connecting Schools Grant: East Butler Primary School (Major Grant), St Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary School (Major Grant), Rawlinson Primary School (Medium Grant) and Grandis Primary School (Small Grant). Well done to all those involved we look forward to seeing the end products. The City was also successful in attaining a WABN grant for an Active Travel Officer.

The City has held lunch and learn sessions for staff from Transperth Education team to Get Back on Your Bike Bicycle Maintenance from People on Bicycles. We held Bike Month at Splendid Park and a Bike Breakfast at Drovers Place. We celebrated National Ride 2 Work Day with a staff breakfast and competition, Walk 2 Work Day with a selfie competition and re-jigged our staff travel webpage and created a workplace access guide. As well as promoted riding to work through staff inductions, the r2w coffee user group and our e-bike.

We have encouraged active transport in the community through the RAC Bike Basics Workshops, RAC Beyond the Roads workshops and features in our social media and What's Happening Newsletter.

Looking forward to more active travel adventures in 2024!
