​​​​​​​Mudgeeraba State School is part of the Gold Coast City Council Active School Travel Program.  We were one of the first schools to pilot the program and are relaunching​ in 2021 with Cr. Glenn Tozer.

We believe that Active School Travel,

  • promotes road safety among students and families
  • encourages an active healthy lifestyle
  • reduces congestion on Old Coach Road and Milky Way during peak times
  • fosters positive relationships between students, younger siblings and adults
  • develops an awareness of road safety and the impact upon our environment

Mudgeeraba families can participate by,

  • our initiative of Walking Wheeling Wednesday will operate from week 3 of term 1 where families can park at our local soccer club carparks and walk, cycle or scoot to school with staff
  • leave the car at home and walk to school
  • ride your bike or scooter to school making sure that students wear helmets
  • families can organise carpooling 
  • use public transport with bus services and bus stops operating on Old Coach Road

Gold Coast City Council support us by,

  • Active School Travel Officer who meets and communicates regularly with school staff
  • financial support through various grants to upgrade facilities such as our bike cage
  • financial support to release staff per term to organise Active School Travel initiatives and programs 
  • road safety signage to further enhance the Active School Travel message
  • coordinating between departments such as Main Roads and Council 
  • coordinating between organisations such as Translink and the Ashmore Bicycle Safety Centre to provide free programs for our Year 4 and 5 students
  • school visitation by Zero the Hero
