Working Together.

Back in 2015, Term 3 to be exact, schools in the City of Rockingham were invited to attend a meeting to explore ways of encouraging & improving Active Transport participation. This meeting was instigated by then Travel Smart in collaboration with the COR, through the Community Development Officer (Health & Well-Being)

One of the items for discussion was path signage to schools. After much discussion & refining of the idea, this signage became a reality for the 2016 school year.

Fast forward to 2018, the signage was showing its age, so at another of the COR/YM networking sessions, it was discussed a revitalization of said signage. In 2017 the Green Team at Baldivis Secondary College designed similar signage for routes to BSC & this had been installed for the 2018 school year. So the discussion became: can COR update the "old" signage to the new fresh one?

Yes, we can! Thank you, COR, through the Community Development Officer (Recreation & Well-being), for updating the signage. And thank you to the Green Team at BSC, for your bright & engaging artwork! Who wouldn't want to walk or cycle to school?

Footnote: So since Term 3, 2015, YM schools in Rockingham have been meeting each term to report on YM & AT. This has been facilitated by the COR Community Development Officer & the venues have been shared with the participating schools.

That really is a good news story. Not only because you have got lovely new wayfinding signage down, but also that it is a result of the successful local network you are a part of. Thanks for sharing - you received 60 points for your wayfinding signage and a bonus 10 for the helpful details.

This is great news Arlene! It's so great to see our vibrant wayfinding signs popping up all over Perth around schools and local government areas. North Perth PS are next!
