Walk to School

Local primary schools can support students and their families to do regular physical activity by participating in VicHealth’s Walk to School initiative.

Learn more about the benefits of walking to school

Walking, riding or scooting to and from school can help children to achieve the recommended 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity each day, and adopt physical activity habits for life. It can also help to reduce traffic congestion, parking difficulties and the associated environmental impacts.

Sign up your school for Walk to School this October.
