Sign up now for Walk to School Month

Published on 25 August 2017

Melton City Council is once again throwing its support behind Walk to School Month this October, and encouraging local schools and students to sign up.

Walk to School Month promotes regular physical activity in Victorian primary school students, while helping children and their families establish active routines for life.

Council is now urging local schools and families to get involved, sign up and run their own fun activities to promote walking, riding and scooting to and from school.

Schools which participate in Walk to School will receive certificates to celebrate their students’ achievements, and will be in the running for a series of prizes.

Walk to School Month is one of many initiatives Council offers to increase rates of walking, riding or scooting to school. Council also promotes bike education and walk to school groups.
