With the commencement of the new school year, how kids are travelling to school has been under the spotlight in the news with headlines such as ‘Back-seat generation’ and ‘Children no longer walk or ride to school’. The increasing number of Aussie kids being driven to the school gates is probably not new to you.
We know that parents are the key decision makers when it comes to how their children get to school, so it is important to understand what influences their decisions.
In this forum we will explore the real and perceived barriers parents face when it comes to allowing kids to arrive at school using active travel. We’ll also explore ways to connect with parents and help them unpack their fears, by providing them with knowledge and ideas to empower them to make a change.
We’re excited to present the inspirational Kerry Logan from Play Australia. Kerry will share her knowledge and expertise in ‘outdoor play’ and the importance of providing kids with opportunities to engage in activities that foster independence, resilience and connection with their neighbourhood, as well as allowing them to be physically active.
If that’s not enough to inspire you into planning for Your Move in 2019, we will be unveiling some great new Your Move resources and sharing some juicy details on the next round of Connecting Schools Grants!
As this forum is all about parents, if you bring along an interested parent who is not already a Champion then you will earn your school a bonus 100 points.
