Winter Walk to School Week is 5-9 August

20 June 2024

Winter Walk to School Week is from 5 August 2024 to 9 August 2024. It is an opportunity for the Canberra school community to encourage walking, riding, scooting or skating to school even in the colder months of winter.

Throughout the week, schools are encouraged to promote active travel for those children who are physically able to. It is an opportunity for students, teachers and parents to incorporate physical activity into their day. It also teaches independence all while reducing environmental impact caused by car travel.

The School Safety Program is an ACT Government program providing Active travel resources and lesson plans, access to bike hire, professional learning workshops for staff and dedicated support for program delivery and active travel events.
