South Kelowna Elementary School took part in a School Travel Planning project that will help more students walk, bike 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 school 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 was important to the success of this project.

Based on what we heard about what school travel choices you’re making and why you’re making them, a travel plan was created that considers the needs of all students.

The School Travel Planning program involved baseline research through classroom and family surveys, observations and traffic counts.
