Walk Safely to School Day

Walk Safely to

School Day

beyondblue is supporting national

Walk Safely to School Day on

Friday May 15. Each year, all

primary school children are

encouraged to walk or take public

transport safely to school with their

parents or a trusted adult. It is a community event seeking

to promote road safety, fitness, public transport use and caring

for the environment.

Regular light exercise, such as walking, is a proven mood-enhancer

and can combat the development of mild depression.
