Darwin Safe & Active Routes to School

Home / Community / Services / For Children / Darwin Safe & Active Routes to School

In Australia, the number of students actively travelling to schools is rapidly declining. Supporting active travel in children from a young age through their journey to school, can build lifelong healthy habits and support safer, more connected communities.

We support active and safe travel within our municipality, and have developed the Safe and Active Routes to School Toolkit which aims to:

  • Improve safety levels for children travelling to and from school, and
  • Encourage active travel in the school community

The toolkit is a resource that will guide you to create a program, activity or event for your school. Schools, parents, governments and the community can all get involved to create a safe and healthy environment that encourages safe and active travel to school.
