​​The Active School Travel program is run by Brisbane City Council (BCC) for participating schools. The program aims to reduce traffic congestion around schools and improve road safety awareness. It encourages parents, staff and children to walk, cycle, car pool or use public transport to get to or from school,  promoting clean and green, active and healthy school travel modes. 

By leaving the car at home, at least one day a week on our active travel day (Tuesdays), we can improve road safety and our health and fitness, create a cleaner environment and reduce traffic congestion at the school gate. How can you lose? If you have to drive to school, you could try parking away from the school (Park & Stride) and enjoy a 10 minute walk with your children.
