Coogee School Safety Survey 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly changed the way we work and with more people working from home, we are sure to see a change in the way we commute to school. What hasn't changed are the benefits to active transport and the need to guarantee safety through the journey to and from our local schools.

In 2021, I want to help identify and remedy the new obstacles that local families are facing, as well as continue our work toward solving the inherent problems along our local school commutes.

While our Eastern Suburbs community is an active one, ensuring that young people, parents and carers can walk and ride to school is an integral part of promoting the health and well-being of everyone. Facilitating safe active transport to and from school means that exercise can be integrated into our everyday lives.

Increasing our use of active transport, isn’t just good for us, it is good for the environment. As we look to address climate change and decrease our carbon footprint, we know that it is fundamental that we look at alternative ways to move around and get where we need to go.

The single most important thing we can do to support families in making active choices and boost the number of families walking or riding to school is to make our local roads, crossings and footpaths safer.
