Last year Victorian students walked 1.7 million kilometres, the equivalent of walking around Australia 112 times or two return trips to the moon!
As an incentive to participate, Council and VicHealth are offering schools two generous options. Option 1 is a $300 voucher to host a healthy breakfast. Option 2 is $300 worth of sporting equipment. New schools who have not participated in the past will be eligible for an additional $200 towards their chosen incentive.
Schools who register to undertake a Category 3 activity will be in the draw to win one of two mobile coffee cart experiences for a morning to reward parents for helping their children travel actively to school.
Council will present the ‘Golden Shoe’ trophy to the school with the highest percentage of students who walk, cycle, skate or scoot to school during October 2019.
For more information or assistance in regards to Walk to School 2019 please contact Council’s Active Transport Officer on 9262 6433.
All Walk to School Coordinators who tally their final results and submit them by 16 November will be in the draw to win $100 GOLD CLASS movie vouchers to acknowledge their contribution to the Walk to School program.
