HandsUp! counts help schools measure their progress and support more students to become physically active. The Ride2School HandsUp! system is a key reporting tool used by schools in our program.
- Schools can measure the number of students riding and walking to schoo
- The information collected can be used to advocate for improved walking and riding in the local community
- Provides schools access to Ride2School tools
Select one day per week to count. We find Wednesday’s work best!
Ask students how they travelled to school.
Record the results using a HandsUp! data collection sheet.
Log into your Ride2School account and enter the results.
The Golden Wheel is awarded each term to the school with the highest average active travel rate from two or more HandsUp! Counts, so don’t forget to enter those counts for a chance to add your school to the Golden Wheel history books!
The first winner of 2019!
Congratulations to Carlton Primary School who won term 1 2019 with an average active travel rate of 82.94 per cent!
