A Walking School Bus is coming to Mitchell Woods Public School!

Posted March 10, 2019

Mitchell Woods Public School has recently been selected to participate in the Walking School Bus (WSB) Pilot Project! A WSB is a way for students to get to and from school as a group with an adult supervisor who is screened, trained and managed by the Service de transport de Wellington-Dufferin Student Transportation Services (STWDSTS). By walking to school, students are not only being physically active, but they will also become more informed about road safety and gain confidence.

The WSB pilot project will begin shortly and continue until June 2020. Phase 1 of the pilot will run at Mitchell Woods PS from April 2019 to June 2019. In phase 2, the WSB will be expanded to include Holy Trinity CS and Ken Danby PS and will continue service at Mitchell Woods PS. The second phase will run from September 2019 to June 2020.

The WSB is free to participants. Families that are interested in participating will need to register their children. Registration will open March 20, 2019 on the STWDSTS website.

We are also looking to hire Walking School Bus Leaders. Please email Diana Sabti, School Travel Coordinator at STWDSTS, at diana@stwdsts.ca if you are interested in this paid position.

For more information, please visit the STWDSTS website and @WDGASRTSon Twitter.
