TravelSmart to School WA

You can change the world by changing your trip to school!

Local Governments around WA have secured $100,000 worth of Connecting Schools grants to improve bike access and end of trip facilities at 10 TravelSmart schools. New bike racks, scooter racks, skateboard racks, sheds, covered shelters and even a sensory bike path have been installed to encourage more kids to TravelSmart to school.

  • Atwell Primary students are enjoying their new lockable scooter racks.
  • St Jerome's students designed and painted active travel artwork to brighten up the walls around their new bike, scooter and skate board racks.
  • Beeliar Primary have new trikes, scooter racks and a sensory bike path which is interactive for young students - with stop signs, cross walk, bus stop and even a bridge.
  • Redcliffe Primary and Bibra Lake Primary have both installed new secure bike sheds.
  • Perth Waldorf has a new steel and jarrah bike shelter that fits into the school's bushland setting.
  • Phoenix Primary's new bike shelter has U-rails, chains and posts so students learn how to secure their bikes in different ways.
  • Aubin Grove Primary students now have new scooter racks and bike racks to use; and
  • Harmony Primary students and art teachers produced some very creative active travel signs.

The next Connecting Schools grant round has just been advertised. More details are here.
