Our school encourages all students to get to and from school in active ways. There are many benefits for students to walk, cycle and roll to school – including physical and mental health benefits, environmental benefits, and traffic safety benefits. There are many resources available at www.stswr.ca under the ‘Walk Zone’ tab to support parent efforts to help their children get to and from school in active and safe ways.
Having said this, we also understand that sometimes parents need to drive their children to and from school. In these cases, we encourage a “drive-to-five” approach. Please see attachment for full details and ‘Drive to 5’ maps.
