Congratulations to Immaculate Conception on earning a Gold Healthy School Certification from OPHEA!

 

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 spring 2022, Immaculate Conception became one of the first schools in Hamilton to have wayfinding signs to help students get to school. We think of these signs as ‘health infrastructure’, designed to help kids become the best versions of themselves by walking/biking to school. These signs were installed along Immaculate Conception’s Student Streets (click the school on the map to see the Student Streets). We’d like your feedback! What do you think of the placement? The height? The size? The message? Send us an email at info@dailyschoolroute.org.

Also this spring, the community participated in a survey to understand how the path connecting Redeemer University to Klein Circle is being used. This path is part of a Student Street, providing a convenient route to school for at least 32 families who attend Immaculate Conception. It will be removed when the ‘Fields of Springbrook’ development is complete. This is an important neighbourhood connection, and we are investigating the possibility of preserving it. See the survey results here.

Transportation Profile

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 559 students who attend 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 goal is to get 100% of students who live within 1.6km to walk or wheel to school on a daily basis. When we surveyed the community, we learned that 52% of students live within 1.6km from school, and that 31% of students usually walk or wheel to school. We would like to see this number go from 31% to 52%.

School begins at 9:15 and students are dismissed at 3:35.
