Thornlie Senior High School is very excited to have joined the Your Move community. We are looking forward to working with a group of students and parents in 2020 to conduct lots of activities promoting more physically active ways of getting to school. Planning is underway for 2020. The first thing we will do in 2020 is form a working party of interested students and parents. We have completed our first hands up survey and found that 41% of our students come to school by car, 34 % of our students walk, 15% catch public transport and 10% ride a bike or scooter to school. Our aim is decrease the number of students who come to school by car, improving physical health, mental health and decrease congestion around our school during the school day.

Hi Sue - thanks for this story. It took a little while to show up as it didn't have a title! As soon as we fixed that, dadaaaaa, it appeared in the news feed! It's positive that you already have 59% using active transport. Make sure you let us know when your team is together, and also when you have dived into the issues and can share a concrete plan.

BTW I have linked the story to the "Write your first story" activity - I actually give you the 12 points for that in your other story published in December, so those points don't show up here.
