TravelSmart and Sporting Schools

Your Move Schools Program

The Your Move program is free and encourages students to walk and ride to school. Learn why walking and riding is easier and better for you than getting into a car and trying to find a car park. Be TravelSmart and get your school involved.

Benefits of the program include:

  • Increased physical activity for students
  • Reduced traffic congestion at drop off and pick up times
  • Access to support, resources and funding opportunities.

The program is led by a school champion (school staff member or parent), but the success of school involvement is mainly dependent on having a student team.
 
Visit the Your Move website for ideas, resources and tools to get you and your family moving.

Student Leadership Opportunity

A 'Your Move' Student Leadership Team can assist the school to tackle travel issues at the school. Students are key players in changing the school's social norms, so it's great to include them in planning events, brainstorming or decision-making.
Students build essential teamwork and leadership skills as they help implement changes in their school community.

Students are responsible for:

  • Representing the school community as part of the Your Move Program

  • Helping survey and consult the school community to measure progress towards increasing the number of students who walk, ride, scoot, skate and take public transport to school

  • Investigating the problems caused by traffic congestion and road safety issues and preparing a list of actions that will form solutions

  • Writing stories about the events and initiatives that are being planned and happening at the school for the website, newsletters, assembly presentations and encourage competition entries, promote events etc.

  • Thinking creatively, having fun and being innovative to get the whole school community excited about Your Move.

 
For information and assistance with school crossings and other issues contact the City on 08 9411 3444 or visit the Travel Smart webpage.
