14 October 2019

October is a time when families are encouraged to leave the car at home and find another way of getting to school.

An initiative of VicHealth, Walk to School month occurs every October to encourage students to walk, ride or scoot to school. For the students at St Paul’s School, Coburg, Walk to School month is an annual event on their calendar to promote healthy lifestyles.

‘Our students have enthusiastically participated in Walk to School October for a number of years’, said the school’s Deputy Principal, Pat Villa. ‘Learning healthy habits and doing the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity, every day, is achieved by riding, walking or scooting to and from school.’

In 2019, the school is hoping to outdo its record of 2,146 walks, rides and scoots to school.
