Walking to and from school has many benefits:

  • Being active is important for the overall physical health of children and teens​ (and for adults as well).
  • Mental wellbeing improves with activity – students learn better, are better rested, and are less anxious​ when they walk to school.
  • Walking to and from school reduces vehicle​ traffic around schools, which is safer for students.
  • Connections are often made with neighbours while walking to and from school, which equates to safer communities.
  • Walking to and from school with our children is valuable quality time parents can spend with their children.
