Walking the walk

Lismore Heights Public School principal Ken Hickling knows how to talk the talk (he’s a teacher and principal) and he’s encouraging primary school students to walk the walk tomorrow, Friday May 7.

Tomorrow is National Walk Safely to School Day and local schools are participating in the program.

“Exercise is extremely important, particularly in this current climate with an epidemic of obesity, so we’re encouraging everyone to walk to school safely,” Mr Hickling said.

Walk Safely to School Day aims to encourage children to lead a healthier, more active lifestyle by including a walk at the beginning and end of each day. The idea is to ensure Australian children exercise for at least 60 minutes a day to help prevent obesity and other health problems.

Contact your school administration to find out more details.
