Healthy Moves is a Warrnambool City Council initiative - a simple project to encourage school children to be active, healthy and involved in their community. The program is part of a case study by Victoria Walks to assist other councils to promote walking and cycling.
The project is aimed at getting kids to use their feet and legs to get to school and to learn ways in which to be move active, healthier and safe on streets and roads.
Council has combined Ride2School, Walking School Bus Plus, Healthy Food Choices and TravelSmart to create Healthy Moves, to provide the City's families with various different means of getting active and healthy together.
Some of the great activities include:
- Ride2School - frequent rider passports.
- Active transport to school including a healthy breakfast/fruit stop.
- Walk on Wednesday and Friday.
- Friends just getting together.
- Travel diaries.
- Event days like Ride2School, Walk Safely to School and Walk to School.
Council encourages the community to support these initiatives by taking care during school times.
