When: 8am – 9am (morning school peak), Friday 23 March 2018

Who: It’s expected that more than 500,000 students, parents and teachers will start their day a healthier way by riding, walking, scooting or skating to school to celebrate National Ride2School Day.
Why: Currently two thirds of Australia’s young people don’t get enough exercise to stay happy and healthy.
Incorporating exercise and active travel into everyday life is a great way for students of all ages to meet their recommended daily dose of 60 minutes physical activity.
National Ride2School Day is the perfect opportunity for students and school communities to embrace riding a bike as a healthy, easy, fun and sustainable way to get to school.
And it works – schools that are involved in the program report that more than 50 per cent of students ride, walk, skate or scoot to school – more than double the national average.
