National Walk Safely to School Day 2018

Leave the car at home on Friday 18 May and participate in National Walk Safely to School Day.

Kick start your day and 'buddy up' with a friend or neighbour and walk to school. 

If you live too far from school you can still participate — simply park the car at least a kilometre away and walk the rest of the way together.

By registering you go into the draw to win lots of great prizes!

10 Junior Fitness Watches AND 10 Scooter and Helmet packages to be won!

PLUS your school will have the chance to win their very own Go Seek 'Super Strong Bones' show to perform at their school.

Please note: Some schools will host a Walk to School Day event on another day between May 14 and 18. Marching Monday, Trek to School Tuesday, Walk to School Wednesday, Walk Safe Thursday are all popular activities. Students participating in these walks throughout the week will be eligible to win a prize.
