Earl Haig PS Wins Bike to School Week Award

Earl Haig PS Wins Bike to School Week Award

Friday, November 25, 2016

Schools across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area (GTHA) have been jointly celebrating Bike to School Week since 2015. In 2016, the City of Toronto had a cycling mode share of 7.8% during Bike to School Week, which represents 11,971 trips to school by bike – the highest of all the regions in the GTHA. 

On November 24, Earl Haig PS received the first annual Bike to School Week Award for the Toronto Region at the Smart Commute Awards. This award recognizes the school in Toronto with the highest reported cycling mode share during Bike to School Week. 

To encourage ridership during the week, parent volunteers and grade eight students at Earl Haig PS ran activity centres that included a bike parade around the school track, shadow painting, chalk drawings, an obstacle course, and bike safety messaging from the school’s Public Health Nurse. Prizes were awarded to two students from each class for the most uniquely decorated bikes. 

Teacher Courtenay Dew remarked that “[students] loved riding their bikes to school and learned that it is a fun activity for the whole family.”

Our Mission
To enable all students to reach high levels of achievement and to acquire
the knowledge, skills, and values
they need to become responsible members of a democratic society.
