North Perth Primary School will be launching their Access Map and Wayfinding signs in the very near future. The signage on footpaths around the school will help students find the safest routes to walk, ride or scoot to school. These signs will be on the streets very soon. They will point students in the right direction as well as give an estimation of how long the journey will take from each sign. The North Perth P&C will be conducting the launch with some activities for students. More to come soon.
This process has been supported by the City of Vincent and the Department of Transport. Students participated in supplying data to determine the most common routes students are taking to school. This guided the creation of the Access Map and best locations for signage on the footpaths. We have seen a steady increase in the numbers of students walking, riding and scooting to school in the past few years and anticipate the new signs and map will encourage more students to join in. We have also included a number of Park and Walk points around the school to inspire parents to get some extra exercise by walking with their students for part of the journey to school. This would also help alleviate traffic congestion around the school during drop off and pick up times.
