Our first ever Hands Up survey!

Belinda Henderson

We conducted our first ever whole school Hands Up survey today with our students at Mary's Mount Primary School. It's great to gather this data. It was a little surprise to see how many of our students travel to school by car. We will be working towards encouraging more of our students to become a little more active this year by possibly setting a regular active travel day.

Many of our little Pre Primary students put their "hands up" after being asked who came to school in the car this morning.

A regular AT day is a really positive start to increasing the numbers of students using active transport. I imagine you might have a quite large catchment area too - if so you could also consider in future a park and walk/ride promotion perhaps from a local park. If you haven't already - you are eligible for 50 points if you upload your results to our survey tool.
