Walk Safely to School Day (WSTSD) is an annual, national event when all Primary School children are encouraged to walk and commute safely to school. It is a community event seeking to promote road safety, health, public transport and the environment.
Dave talks with Harold Scruby from the PCA about why Active Kids are healthy Kids.
WSTSD promotes the important message of Active Kids are Healthy Kids. The event encourages parents, carers and their children to build regular walking to and from school into their daily routine as children need a minimum of 60 minutes exercise per day. It also encourages parents to drive less and walk more, aiming to decrease dangerous vehicle congestion around schools and reduce carbon emissions from idling cars. Visit www.walk.com.au/WSTSD
