Active School Travel

St Ita’s Primary School participates in Brisbane City Council’s Active School Travel Program.

Families are encouraged to actively travel to and from school by:

  • Walking – an option for families living close to school.
  • ‘Park & Stride’ – an option for families living further away.  Parents park away from the school and walk or ride with their children the rest of the way
  • Cycling or scootering
  • Car-pooling with other families.
  • Using public transport.


The aims of the program are to:

  • Reduce congestion and improve safety of travel routes around the school
  • Encourage environmentally-friendly alternatives to car travel
  • Increase opportunities for health, fitness and independence for children
