Start of school, yay! "Hands UP" Survey

Sharnie Stuart
Mount Lawley Primary School

Mount Lawley Primary School (MLPS) conducted its FIRST ever "Hands Up" survey, yay!

A MLPS teacher from each class conducted a survey requsting students to put their hand up to determine how many students:

  • rode a bike, scootered or skated;
  • caught the bus or train;
  • walked to school; or
  • commuted by car.
  • A total number of 445 students participated in the inaugural survey;
  • 64% commuted by car;
  • 154 participants either walked, rode a bike, skated or scooted to school, representing 34.6% of the total number of participants;
  • 22.9% walked to school;
  • 1.3% of participants caught the bus or train.

In addition to this Hands Up survey, several teachers thought it advantageous to integrate their survey results into their maths lesson, e.g. graphs (pie charts, bar graphs), statistics etc...

Thanks for sharing your first HUS results Sharnie - having that survey in place is really helpful for both your school and Your Move to enable us to assess the impacts of all your activities. When you input the results into our online tool you automatically receive points for the survey. Plus I have given you 15 points for your teachers linking the survey in with their maths lessons. Welcome back for 2020!
