Walking’s the way to go
Students around the country are urged to ditch the car or the school bus this Friday for National Walk Safely to School Day.
Organisers want parents and carers to get involved, and are urging students to take public transport at least part of the way to school, if it is not possible to walk the entire distance. The event encourages parents to teach their children how to cross roads safely.
