posted Sep 25, 2019, 4:08 PM by Leah Ashford

Our school is participating in the 2019 Walk & Wheel to School Week. We will be celebrating active travel all week and in particular on Tuesday, October 8th, Sean Mulligan, from Outspokin' Bike Shop, Elizabeth FitzZaland and Jenny Redpath, Public Health Nurse from our Salt Spring Island Health Unit, along with many volunteers will be here to greet all students first thing in the morning. 

BRING YOUR BIKE THAT DAY! 

We would like to show off our active travelling! 

Here are some ways to get involved:

-participate in walking to school,taking the bus or riding a bike the week of October 7-11th.

-if driving, the CRD initiative has an idea called “drive to Five” – look for a convenient parking location with a safe 5 minute walking route to the school with your child ("it’s good exercise and helps reduce traffic congestion").
