Record number of Victorian councils on board to support Walk to School!
Walk to School is thrilled to have a record number of Victorian councils on board to bring Walk to School to communities across the state.
71 Victorian funded councils have received a Walk to School grant from VicHealth to help make it easier for local schools to educate students and families on the importance of building healthy habits.
Councils will support their local schools bring Walk to School to life in a variety of unique ways with some councils installing decals on local footpaths to show safe walking routes, hosting healthy breakfasts, assisting schools order Walk to School resources and more.
We’re confident students will have a great time walking, riding and scooting to and from school thanks to the fantastic work of local councils.
If you want to see how your local council is supporting Walk to School or have questions about how your school can get involved, check to see they are one of the 71 funded councils here.
Walk to School kicks off at the start of Term 4 in October and helps to support Victorian kids learn healthy habits by encouraging families to walk, ride and scoot to and from school.
