Pri­mary school stu­dents across Hind­marsh Shire had a re­minder about the ben­e­fits of an ac­tive life­style af­ter par­tic­i­pat­ing in Vichealth’s Walk to School pro­gram.

Hind­marsh Shire Coun­cil or­gan­ised the pro­gram and more than 300 ea­ger stu­dents par­tic­i­pated.

Hind­marsh mayor Ron Is­may said it had been won­der­ful to re­ceive feed­back from stu­dents, par­ents and schools de­tail­ing how much they en­joyed par­tic­i­pat­ing in the pro­gram.

“The whole aim of the pro­gram is to get young peo­ple ac­tive and to un­der­stand the ben­e­fits of walk­ing and liv­ing an ac­tive life­style,” he said.
