Join hundreds of thousands of Victorian primary school children this October for Walk to School.  Colac Otway Shire Council will join VicHealth in its mission to get children walking, riding and scooting to and from school as part of the health promotion foundation's annual Walk to School program.

Every October, Walk to School month encourages children and families to get active on the trip to and from school to help build healthy habits for life.  This year's Walk to School dates are October 8th - November 2nd.

Walk to School is a great opportunity to encourage more children to be active and set up healthy habits for life.

This year Council will install and replace worn out or damaged bright pavement decals around school intersections to improve walkability and deliver safety messages to young children, as well as delivering lucky dips to participating schools and running a colouring competition with some great prizes through Colac Herald's Kids Corner.  Visit Colac Otway Shire Council's Facebook page for further details on prizes.  ColacOtwayShireCouncilFacebook
