Now in its 25th year, National Walk Safely to School Day (WSTSD) is an annual event when all Primary School children will be encouraged to walk and commute safely to school. It is a Community Event seeking to promote Road Safety, Health, Public Transport and the Environment. It's held on Friday 10 May 2024 and falls in the midst of National Road Safety Week (5-12 May 2024). That's a good one for the adults of driving age to check out and make the pledge to drive so others survive.

National Walk Safely to School Day will have primary school aged children across Australia taking steps towards a healthier future by participating. Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the National Walk Safely to School Day is championed by the Pedestrian Council Australia. Be sure to save the date and spread the world.


Communities are encouraged to get involved; to reduce car dependency, which in turn reduces pollution, and carers and parents are encouraged to walk more, thus also reducing dangerous traffic congestion around schools. This is one for all primary schools across Australia. This national initiative aims to encourage children to lead a more active lifestyle by simply including a walk at the beginning, at lunchtime and at the end of each day. The event also promotes reduced car-dependency, greater use of public transport, cleaner air, improved diets and road safety to primary school children throughout Australia. See here to get your school involved. There are stickers, posters and information kits for teachers.
