Way2Go offers a range of tools and resources to encourage safer, greener and more active travel at South Australian primary schools. The teaching resources are comprehensive and support teachers as they design their curricula and plan lessons and learning experiences to deliver the student learning intentions of the mandated curriculum framework. They are intended to assist and complement the current work of teachers rather than be an additional delivery expectation. The range of support materials can be ordered online from the menu below.
