1. Ms Georgie Wellwood Armidale 2350 georgie.monie@bigpond.com 0427772643 15 th July 2008 RE: Walking School Bus Initiative to be introduced to all Armidale Primary schools – the first in NSW One rhyme by Gemma in Melbourne, 10 years – “Be cool, walk to school, save the planet, save fuel” 22 October 2008 is the International Walk to School Day § ‘Walking School Bus’ program has occurred in 42 countries around the world in 2007. § Several adults enrolled in the Statement of Attainment in Learning for Sustainability at Armidale TAFE course will help design and implement the program with me. § We anticipate a fun competition between the schools. One of the key aspects of motivational psychology is to engage people to enjoy social change so that it becomes part of their lives leading to durability of change in the long-term. § The state of Victoria has implemented the program since 2006. The Walking School Bus Program is a VicHealth initiative that has given communities an effective and easy way to get children walking to school again. § Walking to and from school gives children the opportunity to engage in regular physical activity. It is good for children, their parents, for the school and for the community. § The program has the added benefits of getting kids to exercise, learn about geography around them and saves parents a car trip. § The walking school bus is well supervised with an adult at the front and one at the back. It is also possible for a cart to be led for children to put in their bags. § Today 60 Victorian councils are running Walking School Bus programs. § At least 3200 primary school students from more than 200 primary schools use the Walking School Bus to get to and from school, with the help of 900 volunteers. The ‘buses’ have become a very positive part of school and community life and offer many health, environmental and safety benefits. They are a great way to get in the habit of a lifelong activity while children are young. § The Department of Education and the Department of Climate Change have a combined commitment to teach sustainability in Australian public schools.

2. BENEFITS of the Walking School Bus Many school communities around the world have started their own walking bus programs, which support increasing needs to change our travel choices. Each child who is part of a Walking School Bus™ is potentially one less vehicle on the road. This eases traffic congestion, increases safety and reduces pollution. The benefits of the Walking School Bus™ reach the whole community and include: • a safe and convenient way for children to travel to school; • improvement of health and well being of children through walking and talking; • an opportunity for children to learn road sense and traffic safety; • reduction of traffic congestion around schools; • contributing to a sustainable environment; • opportunities for children and parents to develop friendships and a sense of place and community in their neighbourhood.
