Families swap traffic time for together time this October

Walk to school

Victorian families will be getting active and avoiding the traffic this October as they walk to and from school for VicHealth’s Walk to School month.

Walk to School encourages primary students to walk to and from school throughout October to learn active habits that can lead to good health, and highlights the many benefits of walking for children, from improving fitness to building friendships, and even reducing traffic and pollution.

With some great prizes up for grabs, and plenty of fun competitions for students during October, Walk to School is a free, easy and fun way for kids get the 60 minutes of exercise they need each day.

Netball Victoria is proud to support VicHealth and their initiatives to promote healthy lifestyles within our Victorian communities. Find out more and sign up at www.walktoschool.vic.gov.au.
