Safe Routes to School project

Danielle Howton
Honeywood Primary School

The City of Kwinana, West Cycle and Honeywood primary school have teamed together to work on the Safe Routes to School Project.

The project's aim is to help ease traffic congestion at the school and helping students feel more confident in commuting to school via walking, bikes or scooters.

The project includes consultation regarding mapping up to 5 safe routes of 800metres for students to follow to school.

Rules will be printed on brochures for the families and the students will help paint the blue footprints and red stop symbols along the routes using stencils.

The first part of the project was to obtain base line data. External volunteers were organised and met at the school to track the most popular ways students enter the school grounds and what means of transport they use.

That's very exciting Danielle 🎉 I love the flyer too! Let us know how it goes. When you have done the stenciling we can link the story to the "Map Safe Routes to School - Stencil Art (Advanced)" activity, and when the map is produced you could post a story for "Create a school Access Guide". For now though, you have received 65 points for your work harnessing "Volunteer Power" and another 10 for letting us know how it is all going to work.

BTW - how did you fund this? Is it sponsored by the CIty?
