DO Details

On Friday 17 May, children from across Australia will put their feet first, and journey towards a healthier future by participating in the 20th anniversary of National Walk Safely to School Day.

The annual event raises awareness of the health, road safely, transport and environmental benefits that regular walking (especially to and from school) can provide for the long term well-being of our children. Apart from the physical health benefits, regular walking also has a favourable impact on their cognitive and academic performance.

The day also encourages primary school aged children to build walking into their daily routine, by walking to and from school, not just on Friday 17 May, but every day.

Get your local school involved!
