Our school has been selected as one of 18 new schools joining Brisbane City Council’s Active School Travel (AST) program in 2019.
Active School Travel promotes clean and green, active and healthy school travel modes such as walking, cycling, scootering, carpooling and public transport. Over the next three years, our school will receive a range of free resources, tools, incursions from Council to enable active travel to and from school.
By choosing to actively travel to school, at least one day a week on our active travel day, we can reduce traffic congestion at the school gate, improve our students’ road safety awareness, create a cleaner environment, and improve our health and fitness! Or if you have to drive, park the car away from the school and actively travel the rest of the way. That’s Park & Stride.
More details to come early next year, and we strongly encourage you to be part of this great initiative to change our school environment and culture.
Start thinking how you can use your car less travelling to and from school next year.
