It's been a long haul, but thanks to the persistence and commitment of Mrs Claughton and her Year 5 class, our amazing map is finally finished! Using a spreadsheet of addresses (de-identified, of course!), the students methodically located and plotted each one using a colour coded sticker to indicated the distance from school. The final result is a very clear visual story about where most of our school families live - 67% live within 2 kilometres, which is approximately a 10 minute bike ride!
The final map has been included in the school newsletter, and is on display at school for all students to have a look at. Mrs Claughton's class will also be using the map to develop some more ideas about active transport and sustainability in the final weeks of term. We hope the map will start some conversations in the school community about the possibilities for active transport, and help set some goals for 2021 and beyond.
