Our Events

Ride or Walk to School supports events to encourage students to try an active travel mode on the way to school and celebrate those who already do. There is one event each term and each event has resources available to make promotion easy.

National Ride2School Day

Friday 25 March, 2022

National Ride2School Day is Australia’s biggest celebration of active travel. It is a day full of fun and colour where students, teachers and parents discover the joy of riding and kick-start healthy habits for the future.

Walk Safely to School Day

Friday 20 May, 2022

The event seeks to promote road safety, health, public transport and the environment. Australian children are becoming less active. One substantial contributor is the decline in walking and/or taking public transport to school.

Sedentary behaviour can lead to long-term and costly risks of illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes. Walking regularly is the best exercise because you can build it into your daily routine

Winter Walk to School Week

15 – 19 August, 2022

It may be chilly outside but don’t let the cold weather stop you from walking or wheeling your way to school in Winter Walk to School Week..

Children need 60 minutes of physical activity every day. Riding or walking to school is an easy way to ensure you are getting the recommended activity every day.

Ride Safely to School Week

8 – 12 November, 2021

Ride Safely to School Week has been developed to give schools the opportunity to reinforce safety messages around cycling while encouraging students to ride to school.

We recognise the importance of kids getting the recommended 60mins of physical activity everyday, and that while riding your bike it’s just as important to be safe on the streets.
