Walk safely to Miranda North Public School

Despite all our challenges this year, many schools around the state, and indeed Australia, participated in National Walk Safely to School Day 2021.

Miranda North Public School wanted to support and encourage students’ safe active travel to and from school. Teachers attended the Supporting Walk Safely to School Day professional learning workshop and then embarked on planning a special day. Students in stage 3 were involved in the planning and decision making for this event and the selection of activities.



Some of the activities the students created were:

Students wearing silly socks and sensible shoes to walk to school safely

Safety Town's interactive online teaching and learning activities helped to engage students in learning about how to be a safe pedestrian.

Integrating the variety of activities into their school day allowed them to practice and discuss safe behaviours, and take a whole-school approach to safe active travel.
