Buderim Lions Walk to School Program
What are the Walks?
- The Walk to School Program encourages parents to bring their children at designated drop off points, away from the congested areas of the school.
- Parents are encouraged to join the walk with their children if they are able.
- Walks are conducted one day per week, different days for each school to spread resources.
- The assembled children are escorted by Lions and Police, assisted by Volunteers.
- Supervision ensures the children remain safe for the trip.
- Walks vary from 5 to 20 minutes.
The benefits of the programme include:
- Parents enjoy spending more quality time with their children.
- Improve the health and fitness of parents and children
- Reduce congestion and create greater safety around the school
- Reduce airborne pollution outside the school
- Reduce vehicle costs and the demand for car parking.
- More fun than driving
- Catch up with other parents, chat while walking, or chill out.
- Teach road safety to children
- Improved interaction between children and aged groups. Particularly beneficial for new or shy kids!
This program has been well documented and so it can be replicate by any club. For more Information, forms etc contact the Buderim Lions Club.
Australian Motorhoming Lions Club
We are a young club and only chartered on the 30th June 2016 our current membership stands at 52 members and growing. Our members have two passions and that is Motorhoming as a way of travelling and to help as many Lions Clubs around the country as possible.
We do not actively seek or encourage existing Lions Club members we wish to introduce as many people as possible to Lions as we can. This is evident in the membership of 52 we have now with the following breakdown:
4 Transfer members who are also the founding members
10 Previous Lions Members returning to Lion
38 New members to lions
The main consideration for accepting an existing Lions member into our club is if that member was going to leave Lions to go travelling. We are a national club with members in all states with the exception being the Territories at present.
A lot of our members have travel to most places and have been travelling for quite some time and by joining Lions they have added another dimension to their travel experience.
If any club out there would like to register a major event they hold annually and need assistance please email us all your info and we will put it on our calander.
