ASCHOOL in its frst year of operation has been recognised for its efforts to get pupils to and from school safely, actively and sustainably. Elim Christian College’s junior campus, which opened in Golf- lands in February, has been named a Travelwise school by Auckland Transport (AT). Travelwise is run by AT with the NZ Transport Agency, Min- istry of Health and police and seeks to reduce car trips to schools and work places and encourages greener, more active and safer forms of transport. To achieve the aims, Elim junior campus has organised a number of travel options, such as walking buses, park and walk sites, buses and car pooling. It has also intro- duced a golden shoe award for the most travel-wise class of the week. AT southern community trans- port co-ordinator Greer Hawley says the wide variety of methods is the strength of the school’s system. The number of Travelwise schools has increased from 86 in 2006 to 271.
