Walk to school

Cobram Primary School is taking part in Walk

Safely to School Day.

The national day will be held on Friday, May 15

when parents and carers are encouraged to walk

safely to school with their children, either all or at

least part of the way.

Now in its tenth year, the aim is to develop active

kids and healthy kids by encouraging all Australian

children to exercise regularly, including at

least 30 minutes of walking in their daily routine.

The event also aims to reduces hazardous traffic

congestion and vehicle pollution around schools.

"Children develop lifestyle habits when they're

young," event organiser Harold Scruby from the

Pedestrian Council of Australia said.

"Encouraging them to walk regularly, instead of

jumping into the car is an easy, effective and

achievable way to forge their pathway to becoming

healthy adults."

All schools around the nation will receive a Walk

Safely to School Day kit including stickers, posters

and a how-to-participate guide.
