Walk Your Children to School on May 14th

In an effort to promote Road Safety, Health, Public Transport and the Environment, the Pedestrian Council of Australia are hosting the National Walk Safely to School Day (WSTSD) on Friday 14th May, 2021.

Now in its 21st year, the annual community event encourages all Primary School children to walk and commute safely to school.

This national initiative aims to promote and inform parents, carers, teachers and children of the significant physical, mental and social health benefits which can be achieved through regular walking. In an effort to motivate children to lead a
healthier, more active lifestyle by simply including a walk at the beginning, at lunch time and at the end of each day.

The event promotes:

  • reduced car-dependency,
  • greater use of public transport,
  • cleaner air,
  • improved diets and
  • road safety to primary school children throughout Australia.

Parents and carers will need to closely supervise their young children, particularly those under 10 years of age, in all road environments, holding hands when near or crossing the road.

This event is supported by the Logan City Council.
