How RU Travelling? is a primary school activity held for one week to:
- Promote healthy behaviours including active travel to school, Crunch&Sip® break at school, vegetable consumption, and replacing screen time with physical activity.
- Support teachers providing health information to families.
The How RU Travelling? activity was developed for Stage 3 (Years 5 and 6) students, and offers a range of resources. Watch the video below to see how the activity works.
Classroom activities and resources
Did you know children who watch TV for more than two hours every day are more likely to have an unhealthy diet, less likely to eat fruit and less likely to be physically active? Check out these fact sheets on how to replace screen time and get active each day.
Active travel can also have considerable health benefits for children and parents, as well as additional social and environmental benefits for communities. Active travel means walking, cycling, skateboarding or any similar transport where energy is used to travel. Using public transport usually requires walking to and from destinations (e.g. bus stops) and is therefore also considered as active travel. To learn more about active travel and for tips on how to encourage it visit, the children’s active travel page on the NSW Health website.
