Walk to School

Walk to School

Walk to School is a VicHealth initiative supported by Knox City Council. During the whole month of October, Council works with schools, students, parents and staff to encourage everyone to walk to school. Walk to School is fun and a great way for school communities to get fit and win local and regional prizes.

Walking can help students learn healthy habits and achieve the 60 minutes of physical activity recommended for children each day. More people walking in our streets can also help reduce traffic congestion, parking difficulties and the associated environmental impacts driving a car to school might have.

How to get involved
Visit the Walk to School website for details on how your primary school can get involved and register.
