Celebrating its thirteenth year in 2012, National Walk Safely to School Day has become a popular annual event on school and family diaries across Australia to walk to school.
National Walk Safely to School Day offers wide-ranging benefits to Australian children. The day promotes regular walking, reduced car-dependency, cleaner air, improved diets, public transport and reinforces vital road-crossing skills children need.
For the first time in 2012, parents, carers and pupils can go online to find and plan their best walking route to school at their website.
I encourage the community to Walk Safely To School on Friday 15 May. For more information please click here.
