At Harrisdale Primary School we conducted a Hands Up Survey in mid-May, this was again repeated in mid-December. When comparing results, it is evident that these were roughly the same, with a 1% decrease in travel by car and bicycle in the end of year survey compared to the mid-year survey and a 1% increase in students walking, when comparing both surveys. As a large primary school with over 1100 students at Harrisdale Primary School we find it beneficial to complete Hands Up Surveys throughout the year as it indicates where facilities may need improving, such as bike and scooter racks and the likes. The Harrisdale Primary School P&C have been working towards the introduction of a lollipop person to assist students and parents when walking to and from school. The process for this is a main goal for HPS in 2020.
