Walk and Roll: Getting Kids Active and Keeping them Safe

The New Zealand Government has proposed to have more than half of schoolkids walking, biking, scooting, or skating to school by 2030. They recognise the long-term health benefits of daily physical activity, and many studies show that regular exercise improves children’s physical, social, and emotional abilities, their resilience, and even their creativity.

Of course, all schools, in the interest of student health and wellbeing, must make sure that all walking, biking, scooting, and skating is done smartly and safely.
