George Pringle Elementary School is taking part in a School Travel Planning project that encourages more students walk, cycle or otherwise use active transportation for the school journey wherever possible. The School Travel Planing program is delivered in partnership with the City of West Kelowna, School District 23, Interior Health, Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Sustainable Transportation Partnership of the Central Okanagan.
The benefits of more students making the school journey on foot or by bike include:
- Increased safety
- Improved health
- Arriving alert and ready to learn
- Less stress, greater happiness
- Less pollution
- Reduced traffic congestion at and around the school
Through the School Travel Planning program, parents, teachers and your school's administration staff have been working with municipal, school district and public health officials to deal with the issues that prevent students from using active transportation.
This survey is a follow up to one conducted in May 2015. Your feedback will help evaluate the performance of safety measures and routes put in place as a result of the previous survey.
Every family’s input is important to the success of this project.
Please provide input in the following ways:
Please take five minutes with your eldest child who attends this school to complete the survey by Friday May 31, 2019.
Provide additional details about the journey to and from school and add ideas on how to encourage students to walk or cycle to school.
