World Car Free Day ... Moving Success!

Elaine Lewis
Coolbinia Primary School

Coolbinia PS's World Car Free Day was a success despite the rainy weather! We held it early because we had many events planned for the rest of this term. We conducted pre and post surveys and found a 12% improvement in students coming to school by walking or riding for this special event.

The photos show our Your Move team leaders handing out raffle tickets and stickers to children as they arrived at school. We had 24 winning raffle tickets, 7 first and second prizes and the rest were third prizes. Students won gift vouchers, shoe pets, wrist bands, and lots more! We also had a prizes for the most improved class. Every student in that class received a wrist band. Congratulations to all our students who made the move!

Great work, Coolbinia! Good to see you've thought of initiatives to continue to encourage walking, scooting and riding in spite of wet weather. Glad to hear the surveys have been helpful - 12% improvement on an event day can hopefully encourage more of the same on a regular day. Thanks again for sharing.
