Sidney Elementary is participating in the CRD’s third annual Walk & Wheel to School Week from October 7-11.
We will be celebrating active travel all week!
Students who walk or wheel (bus, bike, scoot or skate) all or part way to/from school, will get a sticker to put on our school trip tracking poster. At the end of the week, we will send a picture of our poster to the Capital Regional District (CRD) to show off our active travelling and a chance to win prizes.
We will do daily draws for fun prizes. Walkers and Wheelers can enter their names near the bike racks each morning.
Here are some ways you can get involved:
Walk or wheel as a family
Participate in a walking or bike train (join up with families from your neighbourhood and walk and wheel together in a group)
If driving, ‘Drive to 5’- look for a convenient parking location with a safe 5 minute walking route to the school (it’s good exercise and helps reduce traffic congestion. Try the Sidney Library, Dollarama, or Thrifty Foods)
Check out our Sidney Elementary Best Routes to School Map which was developed in partnership with the CRD last year.
