Walk to School

Walk to School is back and open for registrations!

Walk to School is an initiative of VicHealth that aims to encourage primary-school students across Victoria to walk, ride or scoot to and from school as often as possible during the month of October.

Greater Shepparton City Council supports Walk to School, helping primary school children to achieve the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity, by supporting them and their families to establish active routines and active travel behaviours. VicHealth’s Walk to School month highlights the benefits of walking for children, such as improving fitness, friendships, their confidence and the environment.

Greater Shepparton City Council is encouraging all local primary schools to get involved in Walk to School this October and be in the running for a new school bike rack, giveaways and random draw prizes.

VicHealth’s Walk to School is a free, easy and fun way for children to get active in October and start a habit that will put them on the path to good health for the rest of their lives.

This year Council is encouraging schools to complete the Active Transport Survey to assist in identifying the current barriers that discourage your children from using active transport to and from school. To have your say please click the link below on Active Transport Survey.
