Each term the parents of St Augustine's Primary School are encouraged to make a pledge to assist their children to learn safe active travel behaviours.
I have found that the best avenue for engagement in this activity is via a 'Facebook Poll'. In Term 2 I decided to provide an extra incentive to parents to make a pledge.
I left the poll active for a few weeks and then sent a reminder on the morning before the poll closed.
I printed each of the pledges with the corresponding names so that the winner's pledge was read out to the whole school at the prize draw. This helped cement the message to the students that their parents are playing a vital role in providing support to them to learn safe active travel habits.
With great excitement the winners were drawn to a full school audience at recess time.
After school when the winning parents came to meet their children, there were smiles all round, with children showing pride in their parents engagement with the Your Move program.
