SOY Hands -Up completed.

Pleased to say the tide may be turning in favour of Active Transport! Looking back over 2017 & 2018 SOY & EOY Active Transport results, this year's results are promising.

  • 2017 SOY 47% EOY 49%
  • 2018 SOY 46% EOY 53%
  • 2019 SOY 53%

This data will provide a benchmark for setting our AT goals for this year. I will take this information to the Team next week for a decision on setting SMART goals for this year.

It is heartening to see that our AT % from the end of last year has been maintained into the start of this year. This was evident with a walk past the bike racks early last week (plenty of bikes!) Sure & steady we ARE getting there; the challenge now is to MAINTAIN (or increase) the AT component of coming to school.

I am sure the Team will come up with some great ideas. Watch this space.

Arlene - you are so immersed in YM you are even using our acronyms! Some people might think you were offering tofu as an incentive, but hopefully most know that you have done a Start of Year (SoY) survey! You get 10 points for making me laugh and for your strategic approach to the data.

I've had a chuckle too now, James, but there was a time when I was scratching my head with SOY & EOY! YM just lends itself to acronyms ( R2SD, NWS2SD...) & yes it appears that I have wholeheartedly embraced them.
