Nominate your primary school for Council's 2018 Active School Travel Program

Do you want active and healthy students ready to learn, less traffic at the school gate and stronger school communities?

Apply for the 2018 Active School Travel program.

Help make your school a safer place and develop street-smart kids by swapping the car for:

• walking
• scootering
• cycling
• public transport
• car pooling.

Primary schools that successfully apply to be part of the Active School Travel program will receive a comprehensive range of FREE resources and workshops to enable families to leave the car at home and actively travel to and from school.

Since its launch in 2004, the program has helped to swap up to 35% of single-family car trips to and from participating schools for an active and healthy transport alternative.

Principals are encouraged to apply online now for the 2018 intake.

Places are limited and nominations will close on Friday 1 September.

Visit Council’s website (www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/activeschooltravel) or call Council’s Contact Centre on 3403 8888 for more information.
