Milton State School launched its 2023 Active School Travel Program. To kick off the program, they hosted an Active Travel Disco, celebrating students who walk, cycle, skate, scooter, park-and-stride, or carpool to school. 

The program encourages students to choose active modes of transportation, and each Wednesday, they collect data on the percentage of students actively travelling to school. The classes with the highest percentage in different areas are rewarded with a sports kit or board games.

By promoting active travel, the school hopes to reduce traffic around the school area and promote a healthier lifestyle for the students.
