National Walk Safely to School Day

Contact: Walk Safely to School

Location: Your school
Date: 24 may 2013

Intended Audience: All primary schools

A quick reminder that Friday 24 May is National Walk Safely to School Day – which asks parents and carers to walk their primary school-aged children all or part of the way to school.

Now in its 14th year, school children learn about pedestrian safety and the importance of regular exercise by participating in the national awareness-raising day.

This year the Pedestrian Council of Australia has introduced the Walk Safely to School Day App for Apple and Android phones.

The App will allow children and parents/carers to track their kilometres travelled to and from school, time spent walking and their average walking speed.
