St Joseph’s Participate In ‘Walk Safely To School Day’

Last Friday, students and teachers from St Joseph's Catholic Primary School joined in the nationwide event of National Walk Safely to School Day. This initiative, celebrated in primary schools across Australia, aims to promote a healthier, more active lifestyle among children by integrating walking into their daily routines.

Principal of St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Deb Mallet said it was a fabulous turnout. For the third time, St Joseph’s students, staff, parents and friends participated in the Walk Safely To School Day.

“We were lucky enough to have three police officers and two members of the Cutters join us for the walk, which was filled with lots of energy and laughter,” Ms Mallet said.
“Many thanks to Mackay Regional Council for supplying breakfast, 200 pedometers that were shared with the first 200 students to participate in the walk, with two Intersport vouchers as a raffle prize.

“How lucky were Noah and Michelle who won the vouchers! 
“Most of all, massive thanks to Mrs Jaz Housden, who coordinated the event from the walk itself to the delicious breakfast that we all enjoyed.

“Thanks also to our fabulous staff and parents who all helped with the walk, cooking and serving the breakfast,” Ms Mallet remarked.
