Active & Safe Travel Project
Active and safe travel to North Melbourne Primary School is a project initiated by staff and parents at NMPS and managed by a committee of those people.
This project aims to improve local area road safety for our students and their families by:
- Encouraging more families to walk, scoot and cycle to school more often as a first choice to travel to school, to reduce the total number of vehicles at the school gate
- Encouraging park and walk options to disperse the total number of vehicles within the local school area
- Improving the efficiency of students being dropped-off through a better functioning “drop and go zone” and supporting behavioural interventions, which address specific barriers and issues identified by the school community
- Co-designing appropriate strategies with the diverse community groups of NMPS
