North Perth Primary School Wayfinding Project Update

Andrew Streeton
North Perth Primary School

In 2017 the school was able to secure a grant from the City of Vincent and Department of Transport. Some of those funds helped subsidise the Bike Education program in Term 4 last 2017. The remaining funds will be used to create and place signage around the North Perth area to direct students to school using the safest routes. Not only will signs be painted on the footpaths but an access map will also be developed to clearly show the safest routes to school.

Routes to school have been developed in consultation with students, parents, the City of Vincent and the Department of Transport. We are currently finalising placements for signs but hope to have the project rolled out before the end of Term 1. The aims of the project are to encourage more students and parents to walk and ride to school each day. The City of Vincent will also identify possible locations for parents to park and walk within a close distance of the school.
