South Kelowna Elementary School Travel Planning

South Kelowna Elementary School is taking part in a School Travel Planning project that will help more students walk, cycle or otherwise use active transportation for the school journey wherever possible.

The benefits of more students making the school journey on foot 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.

Every family’s input is important to the success of this project.

When we know what school travel choices you’re making and why you’re making them, we can create a travel plan that considers the needs of all our students. Please take 8 to 10 minutes with your eldest child who attends this school to complete the survey below by April 14.

Please provide input in the following ways:

1. Survey

Please take five minutes with your eldest child who attends this school to complete the survey by Sunday, April 14.

2. Stories

Provide additional details about the journey to and from school and add ideas on how to encourage students to walk or cycle to school.

3. Obstacle Map

Please identify obstacles on the map you encounter on your way to or from school.


If you have any questions about the survey or the School Travel Planning project, please contact: Dave Gibson at Dave.Gibson@sd23.bc.ca or by phone at 250-470-3283.
