It’s Your Move – Safe Cycle for high schools supports schools to create environments that encourage students to actively travel to school.
High school age students are ready to become independent and make healthy choices. Active travel ticks both of those boxes, yet many are still being driven to school and activities every day.
IYM – Safe Cycle offers a curriculum resources for years 7 to 10 and project support to help schools help students to make active travel a reality.
It’s Your Move – Safe Cycle is a quality resource to:
- educate students in safe cycling techniques and bike maintenance
- increase students confidence and enjoyment of riding a bike as a form of active travel
- build on the primary school initiative, Ride or Walk to School
- link to the Australian Curriculum (Health and Physical Education)
