Students to jump on their bikes
IPSWICH parents are being encouraged to look at ways to reinvigorate their child's journey to school and get involved in National Ride2School Day.
Federal Member for Oxley Bernie Ripoll said it was important to find ways for children to get the recommended minimum 60 minutes of physical activity each day and riding, walking, scooting or skating to and from school was a great way to do it.
Mr Ripoll encouraged local parents and schools to take part in this year's annual National Ride2School Day on March 16.
“National Ride2School Day is great opportunity for children – and their parents and teachers – to get a taste of just how much fun and easy riding or walking to school can be,” Mr Ripoll said.
