The school has been actively involved in Walk and Ride programs since 2004. Participation was initially encouraged by parents and staff offering ‘Big Green Breakfast’ mornings, muffin breakfasts, fruit and milk breakfasts and Round Robin sport activities on arrival at school..Almost 100% of students walked or rode to school.
The school has continued with its commitment to the Walk and Ride to School program, by encouraging every day to be a walk and ride to school day. Students lead initiatives such as weekly reminders and grade acknowledgement certificates.
APS has a Walk/Ride culture, where on any given day the numbers of students walking, skating or riding to school has remained very high.
Walking and riding to school has become an embedded practice across the school and a large majority of students walk, ride or skate to school daily.
