Today is National Walk Safely to School Day.
In its 13th year, the event aims to promote healthy living and reduced car dependency to Australian school children.
Primary school children across the Goldfields are urged to take to the footpath today and let their feet do the travelling.
A range of different activities have been organised by each school, including Hannans Primary School, which will hand out fruit and stickers to arriving students.
St Mary’s Primary School Principal Mark Panaia said he would encourage all students and their parents to participate.
“Children get to school more alert and ready to go than they would if they were driven,” Mr Panaia said.
