VicHealth’s Walk to School month is a free, easy and fun way for kids to get active this October. Victorian primary students are encouraged to walk, ride or scoot to and from school to kick-start healthy walking habits that can lead to good health for life. Primary schools and students can sign up to track their achievements throughout October and be in the running for fantastic prizes.
Students can sign up through their school, by downloading the free Walk to School app, or by signing up online.
By signing up, students can track their walks throughout October and make their walks count toward their school tally.
Victorian primary schools can sign up to receive free Walk to School materials, and be in the running for regional school prizes.
