Get out your calendars and start planning your Active School Travel (AST) events for term 3! As mornings are cooler, now is the perfect time to host events and encourage students and their families to keep motivated during winter.
In term 2, schools used ideas from the AST calendar to create events linked to Star Wars Day, Mother’s Day, World Environment Day and State of Origin.
Use the list of events below as inspiration to start planning your term 3 events to promote active travel and build school community networks.
|July - August||Winter warm up days||Dress up in winter woolies. Host a winter walking fashion parade or serve hot drinks.|
|9-18 August||Ekka||Dress up to bring the country to the city and celebrate the best of Queensland.|
|17-23 August||Children's Book Week||Walk, ride or scoot to school dressed as your favourite book character.|
|1 September||Father's Day||Actively travel to school with your Dad or a significant person in your life. Host a barbecue or a classroom tour.|
|22 September||World Car Free Day||Reduce cars at the school gate by celebrating World Car Free Day before you go on holidays.|
