October is Walk to School month

Walk to School is an annual, high profile community event that encourages primary-school students across Victoria to walk, ride or scoot to and from school as often as possible during the month of October.

For years Benalla Rural City Council have been leading the Walk to School campaign by encouraging regular physical activity with children in several primary schools in Benalla Rural City by supporting them and their families to establish active routines, and by helping primary schools, local businesses and communities to integrate active travel behaviours into their local settings.  

Walking, riding or scooting to and from school or at school can help children to achieve the recommended 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity each day, and adopt physical activity habits for life.

Participating in Walk to School is a great way to build and encourage this healthy and cost-effective activity. We want to encourage all primary-school children and their families to participate in Walk to School 2017.
