WALK SAFELY TO SCHOOL DAY
Walk Safely to School Day initiative will be celebrated on Friday 22nd May.
The Walk Safely to School Day App is available to download and will allow children, parents and carers to track their kilometres to and from school, time spent walking and their average walking speed.
Walk Safely to School Day aims to encourage each Australian child to lead a healthier, more active lifestyle by including a walk at the beginning and end of each day to achieve at least 60 minutes of daily exercise to help prevent obesity and other health problems.
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.
The app and further information is available on: http://www.walk.com.au/wstsd/
