Walk Safely to School Day

11/03/2013

 

It’s nearly that time of year again when primary school children from right around Australia will make those important steps towards a healthier childhood by participating in National Walk Safely to School Day. Now in it’s fourteen year, the Walk Safely to School Day initiative will be celebrated on Friday 24th May.

We hope to encourage children to lead a healthier, more active lifestyle by simply including a walk at the beginning and end of each day.  This event also promotes reduced car-dependency, greater use of public transport, cleaner air, improved diets and road safety to primary school children.

Children are encouraged to walk to school, or if you live a distance from school drive and park a distance from school and walk the remainder of the way to school or catch a bus and walk from the stop to school. For more information www.walk.com.au
