Eden Hill's Active Travel Day - Happy Feet Friday

Kelli Freind

Eden Hill Primary School has had a fantastic start to the year.

Each Friday, the whole school participates in the Hands Up Survey. We call Friday 'Happy Feet' Friday. We encourage students to use sustainable ways to get to school. Each class submits their data, we put in on the Your Move website and display the graphs at the assembly each week. Soon we will be setting up a team who will be responsible for collecting and organising the data.

To promote our active travel day further, a 'Happy Feet' sport bucket has been set up. The winning class (the most class with people who used their feet to get to school) wins the sport bucket for the week. They also receive a certificate to display in their classroom. This has created lots of excitement around the school.

We hope to keep using and improving our use of sustainable ways for getting to school.

Wow Kelli - you have really got Eden Hill off to a great start! You automatically got 90 points for correctly linking the story to the "Start a regular AT day activity", but I have also given you 30 points for having a regular YM assembly item and 60 points for integrating an interclass comp - great stuff!
