It's been a busy couple of weeks at Albany Primary School - we've got a new group of Year 5 students taking on the Your Move student team roles for this semester, and their first task was to conduct the Term 3 Hands Up survey. We do our survey every term, for a couple of reasons. One is that it gives us some more detailed data so that we can better identify trends over time, and also allows us to compare term to term. The other reason is that it helps our student team to be more involved and visible to the rest of the school.
The results were positive - a 2% decrease in driving compared to our Term 2 survey, and an 8% decrease compared to the same time last year. Small steps, but we are heading in the right direction.
Term 3 has also seen one of our Year 6 teachers, Mrs Mercer, take part in the Cycling Australia School Teacher's training course - which means she will now be an accredited coach. This is great news for our Year 6's who head off to Rottnest for camp each year!
