Walk to School - October 2016!
Walk to School encourages primary school children to walk to and from
school every school day in October, to highlight the ways walking improves
children’s health and wellbeing.
By getting involved in Walk to School, your
school can help students learn healthy habits, and achieve the 60 minutes of
physical activity recommended for children each day. Walking to school can also
help reduce traffic congestion, parking difficulties and the associated
Walk to School this October for your chance to win prizes to support physical activity in your school!

Canteen and menu assessments
A healthy diet and good oral health support well-being and are integral to healthy development. Experienced nutritionists and dietitians at the Healthy Eating Advisory Service can assess and provide advice to improve your school or early childhood centre canteen menu.
Encouraging active travel through safe routes to school
Active travel routes with designated ‘pick up/drop off points’ are safe and accessible routes children and families can use to safely walk and ride along to get to and from school.
Instead of selling boxes of chocolates or lollies to raise money, encourage health and wellbeing using these fun and easy products and activities.
