Over 80 students from Caloundra State School got their parents, carers, siblings and pet dogs up early to meet Constable Kelly and celebrate National Walk Safely to School Day.
This years theme was ‘funny sunnies’ and aimed to promote the benefits of walking and commuting safely to school, road safety, health, public transport and the environment.
The walk to school transversed along Bowman Road, Regent Street and George Street all the way to the school gate. Students were reminded about the rules for crossing the road at intersections, using a pedestrian crossing safely, watching out for traffic, giving way to other road users, using mobile phones whilst driving and walking and most of all, how to start the day off healthy.
Everyone arrived safely at school with the help of the groundsman who transported all school bags in the school trailer and local police Natalie and Trent who performed traffic control at the major intersections.
Prizes from the Adopt a Cop Kelly and Travel Smart Representatives were handed out to students who wore their ‘funny sunnies’ during the walk.
