Walk to School month will return in 2019. Stay tuned! 

It’s easy to get involved in Walk to School

Getting active is even more fun when we do it together! Get involved as a student, school or council and start walking, riding or scooting to and from school this October. You could win great prizes just for participating!

Join thousands of Victorian families

Active travel is great for our health and environment so get involved! In 2018, 147,000 kids across Victoria took part in the annual event, walking an impressive 1.7 million kilometres - the equivalent on walking to the moon and back twice, or walking around the coastline of Australia nearly 70 times.

Get ready, get set for Walk to School!

Last year, VicHealth funded 61 enthusiastic councils to provide local Walk to School activities in your community. 


Win fabulous prizes for your school

Did you know that you can win prizes just for walking, riding or scooting to and from school? By participating, you could help your school win a regional school prize. Schools with the highest participation levels are eligible so every time a child walks, rides or scoots to and from school during October, they increase your school’s chance of winning!
