There are days when getting the kids to school can feel like an uphill battle. From the brushing of teeth to the hurried consumption of cereal and then there is the actual getting there. “It’s too cold, my legs hurt, my friends all get driven”.
From the 8th October to 2nd November you will hear no such protests. Little ones will be practically skipping (or scooting, riding, running), as they take part in Walk to School month. The event will create less traffic, less emissions and more happy, healthy kids.
Last year over 140,000 kids took part across Australia and they all unanimously loved it! Whether you’re a pupil, a teacher, a parent or the lolly pop person, contact your school to see if they plan on taking part.
