Active School Travel News (AST)
The Active School Travel (AST) program offers Brisbane primary schools a suite of resources, tools and incentives to enable students, parents and teachers to leave the car at home and actively travel to school. It’s all about creating healthier, more active students and
parents, greater road safety awareness among students and families, and safer streets and reduced traffic congestion at the school gate.
The award-winning program promotes road safety and sustainable and healthy travel modes such as walking, cycling, scootering, carpooling and public transport. It is specially tailored to each school with a dedicated officer, awards and incentives, personalised active travel maps and much more.
2018 will be Mayfield's 3rd year of participating in this program and we are very excited to get underway. 2016 saw us win the School of the Year Award (overall award for 1st year schools) and 2017 School of Excellence (overall award for 2nd & 3rd year schools). We hope to continue our engagement in the program this year and ensure its
sustainability within the school community.
