Walk to School This October!

Cranbourne Carlisle Primary School is excited to be taking part in VicHealth’s Walk to School until Friday 31 October.

Walk to School encourages children to walk to and from school every day in October to highlight the ways walking improves children’s health and wellbeing. Walking to school is a great way to help kids achieve the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity each day.

We’ll be encouraging families and children to walk to and from school as often as possible during October to help children learn healthy habits for life. Teachers will use classroom calendars to record each time children walk to and from school. VicHealth offers some great prizes to schools with high participation and runs fun walking themed competitions for children throughout October.

Each Friday during October, staff will meet children at either of two local parks at 8.30am and enjoy a walk to school together, ready for a 9.00am start.   We look forward to as many children and families as possible joining us!
