Active School Travel

05 October, 2010

Congratulations to Mount Gravatt State School and St James Primary School for committing to Council's Active School Travel Program.

Over the last 6 years, the program has been hugely successful. In 2009, the program achieved a reduction in sole family car trips of 22% across all schools.

Saint Joachims and Greenslopes Primary Schools are also enrolled in the program with Greenslopes Primary recently hosting a Caterpillar Walk.

Over 80 students took part with children walking to school holding (cardboard) sections of Catie and Charlie Caterpillar.

Fruit snacks, and Merlo coffee for the adults, awaited the children at school and prizes of goodie bags and a $50 JB Hi-Fi voucher were given to 3 'free raffle' winners.
