Be involved and join in the fun of National Walk Safely to School Day to be held on Friday May 18.

Many Sunshine Coast schools have activities planned so ask your school for the details of anything they have organised.

Here are some tips from local police to stay safe while you participate in this great event:

  • At traffic lights – only cross when a green walking figure appears and once you've checked that drivers are actually stopping for their red light.
  • At traffic lights – Do not begin to cross the road if there is a red figure – flashing or stationary.
  • At pedestrian crossings – If there is more than one lane to cross, be sure that all approaching traffic has seen you.
  • If there is no signed road crossing within 20 metres, cross by the shortest and safest route such as using a traffic island.
  • Avoid being distracted by talking on your phone or listening to music

Walk Safely to School is a nationwide program conducted around Australia every year. The program seeks to encourage children and families to become more physically active and to teach children about road safety.

Sunshine Coast Council also has several prizes on offer.

You can enter the draw and find plenty of information as well as tips and resources on the Sunshine Coast Council website here.

So this Friday, encourage the children and start the school day active and healthy.
