Walk Safely to School Day is a community event that seeks to promote road safety, health, public transport and the environment. On this day each year, all primary school children around Australia are encouraged to walk or commute safely to school.
Walking or taking public transport to school can not only be good for your child's physical and mental health, it can also help the environment by avoiding a car trip.
See myDr's advice for staying safe and healthy on the way to school (see related links).
