National Walk Safely to School Day
Friday 17 May 2019
In all primary schools across Australia.
This national initiative aims to encourage children to lead a healthier, more active lifestyle by simply including a walk at the beginning, at lunchtime and at the end of each day. The event also promotes reduced car-dependency, greater use of public transport, cleaner air, improved diets and road safety to primary school children throughout Australia.
Encourage children to build regular walking in their daily routine by walking to, during, and from school.
