Our First Your Move Grant

Abbi Kerimofski
Harrisdale Primary School

At Harrisdale Primary School, our goal was to reach Gold in the Your Move Program in 2019. We were able to successfully achieve this and received a grant of new scooter racks for student use. HPS has over 1300 students, with all of them residing in the local intake area. This means that we have a large number of students riding their bike or scooter to and from school each day. A grant such as the one we received has been extremely beneficial in providing a larger number of students with the opportunity to make use of our facilities. We have had over 200 new enrolments in 2020 and it has been great to see the number of students riding or scooting to school has increased along with those new enrolments.

In 2020 we would like to create a Your Move team to discuss and develop on new ways our school can promote active travel. Our term by term rotating roster of Environmental Leaders will work on this project and bring new ideas to fruition throughout the year. We are excited to see what our participation in the Your Move scheme will look like for HPS in 2020!

Hi Abbi - yes, it sounds like bike parking will definitely be well used at Harrisdale. Can you post a photo or two when it is all functional? Make sure you also give us an update once your student team first meets. Welcome back for the new year!
