Blackwater State School acting principal Melinda Gothman said that in the lead-up to Friday, the teachers were reminding students about responsibility and safety as they walked to school.

"One of our values is safety, and we just encourage our students to walk responsibly to school," Mrs Gothman said.

"Walk with a friend or a brother or sister, learn your road rules and be safe." Melinda said they had a lot of students who rode bikes and walked to school each day "This week is a good opportunity to remind them about safety," she said.

"We have older brothers and sisters who collect their siblings in the afternoon to walk home." children throughout the country will participate in the day to reinforce safe pedestrian behaviour while leading a healthy and active lifestyle.
