Ride or Walk to School


The ACT Government’s Ride or Walk to School program complements other government initiatives to support children to walk or ride to school.

Ride or Walk to School provides ACT schools with access to Australian curriculum aligned resources to teach safe cycling, teacher training and parental engagement materials to help the whole school community embrace riding and walking to school.

The following curriculum resources will assist teachers to implement Safe Cycle in the classroom:

This online Safe Cycle for families resource covers a range of topics and is a great link to send home with students to support classroom learning.

More information about the RWTS program is available on the Physical Activity Foundation’s website.
