Swap the car for the footpath this October

Swap the car for the footpath this October

Children and their families are encouraged to get active and walk to school as part of VicHealth’s Walk to School program.

This October, Wodonga Council is taking part in the initiative that focusses on making it fun and easy for children to learn about healthy habits for life.

Students will have a stamp card, which allows them to keep track of how many times they walk, ride or scooter to school.

Their achievements and efforts will be recognised with a certificate, and they will also go in the running for a range of prizes provided by VicHealth. 

If you can’t walk the whole way, there are many opportunities to still participate. For example, parents can park the car a few blocks from school so their children can walk, ride or scoot the rest.

Last year more than 144,000 kids from over 750 schools across Victoria participated in Walk to School, covering more than 2.2 million kilometres.

Wodonga schools can visit walktoschool.vic.gov.au for more information.

We are looking forward to another fun and active month of walking, riding and scooting to school this October!
