Your Move - More Ways to Get There

We are a member of the Your Move Schools program.

Your Move is a Department of Transport program that encourages students and their families to get active by walking, scooting and riding to school. These behavioural changes help instil lifelong healthy and positive habits and improve concentration and academic performance for students, while also reducing traffic and improving safety around the school.  

Everyone can get involved in Your Move. Do you live too far away? Why not drive to a nearby park or café and then walk the rest of the way? Concerned about safety? Why not join your kids in walking or riding to school once a week? Small changes still make a big difference.

By actively travelling to and from school a few times a week can result in huge benefits for your child and the community. These include:

  • Reduced congestion, travel times and parking problems around schools;
  • Reduced carbon dioxide emissions around the school;
  • Lifelong improved health and emotional wellbeing due to instilling positive physical activity habits at a young age;
  • Improved concentration and academic performance;
  • More sustainable and cost-effective transport outcomes, such as reducing the need for investment in parking that may only be utilised for a short period each day, and reduced road infrastructure maintenance costs.
