Immaculate Conception

Immaculate Conception students and their families completed the School Walk survey (see results below) in March 2021. This helps us understand how students get to school and the barriers they face along the way.

In October 2021, the school community participated in a survey to identify the main routes to school that will be designated as ‘Student Streets’. Click on the school to see the routes! They will appear in orange.

In November 2021, we joined student council in walking some of the main routes to school to identify the best locations for wayfinding signs. We also discussed safety issues at roundabouts,  the possibility of having a safe path through Redeemer University, and different ways to encourage other students to walk/wheel to school.

Stay tuned for next steps!

Immaculate Conception is a Catholic Elementary School located in the Harmony Hall neighbourhood in Hamilton’s ward 12. According to data from the HWCDSB, there are roughly 560 students who go to Immaculate Conception from grades JK-8. 26% are within walking distance, and 74% are bussed to school; however, due to many different reasons, some students are driven to school in private vehicles. This is the case in every school across the City.

Our latest data based on 101 responses received in March 2021 suggests that 43% are driven to school, 27% travel on a bus, and 31% use active transportation (walking/wheeling). This data may be affected by the constraints of the COVID-19 pandemic.
