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.

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.

How to develop a School Travel Plan

A School Travel Plan is a document that outlines how a school intends to make travel to and from their campuses safer and more sustainable for students, families and teachers.

It can address local traffic issues around schools and encourage active, safe and sustainable methods of travel such as walking, cycling, scooting or public transport.
