We are thrilled to have a record number of 22 schools with more than 8,500 students participating in our Active Schools — Go for Gold program, running from 3–28 October
Active Schools — Go for Gold 2022
The program will once again be delivered face-to-face and families and students are encouraged to travel actively to school throughout October. Active travel:
- reduces traffic congestion
- improves safety around schools and
- helps the environment.
