Active Schools — Go for Gold 2023

We are delighted to have 15 schools with over 6,500 students participating in our Active Schools – Go for Gold program, running from 2-27 October. 

Our Active Schools — Go for Gold program encourages primary school students to walk, ride, skate or scoot to school this October (2-27)

The program encourages healthy, active, inclusive and socially connected communities. It also aims to reduce traffic congestion, improve safety around schools and help the environment.

Thanks to the following participating schools:

Bentleigh West Primary, Carnegie Primary, Caulfield Junior College, Caulfield Primary, Caulfield South Primary, Coatesville Primary, East Bentleigh Primary, Japanese School of Melbourne, McKinnon Primary, Murrumbeena Primary, Ormond Primary, Ripponlea Primary,  St Anthony’s Primary, St Joseph’s Primary & St Paul’s Primary.

Golden Ticket competition — for students

We look forward to bringing schools the student Golden Ticket competition which encourages students to walk, ride, skate or scoot to school through October. They will be able to record their daily activity on their very own Golden Ticket and will have the opportunity to win a Fitbit Ace (one per participating school) at the end of October.

Students will receive a Golden Ticket (from their participating school – electronic or hard copy) at the start of term 4 and each time you walk, ride, skate or scoot to school, simply tick one of the boxes on your ticket and on your classroom calendar.
Being active helps keep us fit and healthy so when you walk, ride, skate or scoot to school, all or part of the way, it all counts!

At the end of October, each school will determine a winner of a Fitbit Ace and Glen Eira Council will determine which school will take out the interschool honours!

Interschool competition — for schools

Each participating school will have the opportunity to be crowned our Active Schools Champion, 2023 by achieving the highest Golden Ticket activity rate. The more students who participate and enter their Golden Ticket activity on their classroom calendars, the better chance your school has of achieving the highest activity rate and the Active Schools Champion title for 2023.
