Walk to School in October

We're encouraging all Moonee Valley schools to get involved in VicHealth’s Walk to School in October. There are so many great reasons to participate.

Along with the health benefits, walking to school has benefits for the whole community. It reduces traffic congestion, saves on parking, helps us connect with family and friends and even saves the environment!

Last year, 17 schools in Moonee Valley participated. This year we want all 28 schools to participate!

Find your school on the map and then work out the best walking route to school. If you live too far to walk all the way you can park at one of our designated Park and Walk locations and walk, cycle or scoot from there.
