Your Move student team gets to work

Andrea Smithson

The Mount Lockyer Primary Your Move student team have had a busy start to Term 2.

Last week, they did their first presentation at a school assembly, and despite a few nerves, they did a great job of letting the school community know about their role, and to promote the upcoming Walk to School Day.

This week is was time to conduct the Term 2 Hands Up survey. Now the YM team knows the drill, it was a seamless process - with some great results! Compared to our Term 1 survey, we have seen a 7% decrease in car trips, and a huge 29% increase in cycling and 20% increase in walking. Amazing stuff! The team have also come up with a great idea to give out awards to the top 3 Your Move classes, which we will work on presenting at the next assembly.

This Friday the students will also be helping out at the Walk to School Day event, which promises to be another great active transport day for the school. Congratulations to Matilda, Charlotte, Sage and Toby - you are doing a fantastic job!

Good timing to have a YM assembly item - and correctly linking the story to the "assembly" activity has automatically earned you 25 points. I've also given you an extra 10 points for all the extra details you added. With all the big (positive) changes to Mt Lockyer's travel behaviour it seems you are off to a great start for 2019!
