On Friday May 19 2017, thousands of students across Australia walked, scootered and skated to school for the 18th National Walk Safely to School Day. 

Council encouraged all families in the region to register their kids online to go into the prize draw to win 1 of 10 children's scooters or 1 of 10 children's skateboards. Thank you to all of the 1653 students who were registered and participated from over 50 schools across our region.

Remember, you don't have to save your walking for special events like this. Try walking part of the way to school or work by parking the car further away and walking the rest.

Safety tips

  • children younger than 10 should always hold an adult’s hand when crossing the road.
  • drivers should always be alert and considerate when in a school zone.
