MSPS Baseline Survey

In Week 7 Malvern Springs PS completed their baseline survey with some interesting results!

Out of 436 students surveyed nearly 60% of them were driven to school and only 15% cycled. Nearly 30% of students walked to school and 2% caught public transport.

From this data it looks like we have a big task of changing both student and parent habits when it comes to their mode of transport to and from school in 2019!!!

Would be great to get some feedback from other schools on their percentages to compare... even though each school is different!

Much appreciated :)

Today I attended my first ‘Your Move’ forum and had a blast! Leading up to the forum I didn’t know what to expect as Malvern Springs PS were a newly registered school to the program and wanted to know more about it!

A massive thank you to all the speakers today Jane, Arlene, Amy and Elaine for sharing your previous experiences and ideas. It really simplified and put things into perspective for me 👍

Thank you to David and Carol-Ann for organising and hosting today and I’m sure you will be hearing from me soon 😊

All the best to the other new schools on your journey and was great to meet you all!
