End of year survey

Rick Eikelboom
John Calvin School - Albany

Today was chosen to conduct the end of year survey as the end in neigh for the upper grade. However the weather turned a little against us and a forecast thunderstorm prevented some from coming on bike, scoot or walk.

However after conducting the survey, the results weren't too bad with a comparison to the beginning of the year survey showing an increase in cycling (from 17% to 26%) and a small increase in walking.

A great result was the decrease in travelling to school by car (73% to 64%) translating to 29 students choosing an alternative means of transport.

The year six class is to be congratulated with figures showing that 9 students out of the class of 14, cycled today. Well done year 6's. We all look forward to keeping up our new habits and increasing awareness in the new year.

Wishing everyone a safe and enjoyable holiday break.

Thanks for update Rick! Shame about the weather, but it goes to show what a great impact you've had this year if you can boast 29 less car trips with that kind of forecast. I've given you 15 points for analysing the percentages from start of year to now, and adding some reflection on the results. It's been a very positive first year with the Your Move program for John Calvin, we're looking forward to seeing what you come up with next year!
