Walk Safely To School Day, 17th May 2019

Wednesday, May 15, 2019 - 9:52am

Friday 17th May is National Walk Safely To School Day - an annual community event when all primary school children are encouraged to walk and commute safely to school. What a great way to promote road safety, health, public transport and the environment.

At Glebe Hill Family Practice we love the message that this event promotes - ACTIVE KIDS ARE HEALTHY KIDS!

We encourge parents, carers and their children to build regular walking to and from school into their daily routine. Children need a MINIMUM of 60 minutes exercise per day. Encouraging less driving and more walking aims to decrease dangerous vehicle congestion around schools and reduce carbon emissions from idling cars. Lastly, it is just a nice way to be part of your community.

Get involved, walk to and from school on Friday 17th May!
