My family and I moved to New Zealand about 2months ago. My 6 year old now actually has the opportunity to walk to school and ride a scooter to school. When we first arrived, our neighbour surprised him with a borrowed scooter. So that's what he uses to scoot to school (would be super great if he could win a scooter of his own though). It's also great exercise for my wife who walks with him to school. And a great way to make new friends.
