Walk to School has begun! PHPS will join hundreds of other schools from across Victoria to try and make active travel a priority. Throughout October we will be recording students’ modes of travel to and from school with the goal of promoting healthy activities like walking and cycling.
There are lots of ways to get started, but the best option is always the one that suits your family. You can:
walk to school with your child and enjoy the chance to talk and teach road safety skills
arrange for your child to walk to school with trusted family friends or neighbours
drive part of the way to school and then walk the rest
mix it up! If your child likes riding or scooting, those are great options, too!
The Walk to School program promotes regular physical activity in Victorian primary school students. It helps kids and their families establish active routines for life.
