National Walk Safely to School Day – Friday 22 May

Primary school children all around Stafford and Queensland took part in National Walk Safely to School Day today.

Anthony meet with students from Stafford State School this morning who were taking part in National Walk to School Day.

Stafford State School is an active school that encourages students to get active and healthy all year round. The school has a high percentage of students who walk to and from school and take part in regular morning exercise.

National Walk Safely to School Day aims to encourage children to lead a healthier, more active lifestyle by simply including a walk at the beginning and end of each day. The event also promotes reduced car-dependency, greater use of public transport, cleaner air, improved diets and road safety to primary school aged children throughout Australia.
