In the fall of 2020, the community at St. Ann participated in a survey to help us understand how students are traveling to and from school, and the barriers they are facing along the way. School staff have been walking around the neighbourhood before the morning bell to make sure that kids are getting to school safely.

We have partnered with Beautiful Alleys to revitalize the alley between Sherman and Birch, just north of Cannon. Click on St. Ann’s school icon on the map to see which alley we are referring to. It will appear in green. This alley will become one of the DSR’s first Student Streets.

On September 18, members of the school community participated in Beautiful Alleys’ fall 2021 cleanup day! Together we cleared 15 bags of garbage from the alley between Birch and Sherman, closest to Cannon. Thanks to everyone who participated!

Transportation Profile

St. Ann (Hamilton) is a Catholic Elementary School located in the Stipley neighbourhood in Hamilton’s ward 3. According to data from the HWCDSB, there are 288 students in grades JK-8 who attend St. Ann (Hamilton). 67% are within walking distance, 15% are bussed to school, and 18% are out of bounds; 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 66% of students live within 1.6km from school, and that 55% of students usually walk or wheel to school. We would like to see this number go from 55% to 66%.

School begins at 8:45 and students are dismissed at 3:05.
