The route was identified as a part of St Monica's Walking School Bus program. Families chose the route so it would enable the greatest number of students from that area of Moonee Ponds to join the walk to and from school.

The route is popular and safe and has interesting things for students and their siblings to look at along the way.

After this route was chosen, the school informed Moonee Valley City Council and the Council then audited the route to ensure it was safe and in good condition. Following the Council audit, a number of small infrastructure improvements were made to the route. These included evening out the footpath so it was smoother to walk on and installing pram ramps so roads were easier to cross.

It is a great example of a school community and local Council working together to ensure students can gave to school happy, alert and ready to learn!
