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%.

Here's what's happening at St. Ann (Hamilton) CES

Upcoming activities:

  • This Spring, the HAT and Leadership Team are teaming up to create student friendly alleyways. St. Ann students will participate in an art contest, and one per division will be chosen to be posted in the alley. We will also be hosting an alleyway cleanup during Earth Week. Click on the school on the map to learn which alley! It will appear in Green.
  • The Leadership Team will be trying a new activity called “Student Street View”. Students have been tasked with taking a picture of their walk to school and reflect on it. This picture is meant to help demonstrate how the student experiences their walk to school – it could be positive or negative. Student Street View will be incorporated into the DSR map!
  • In Spring 2023, the St. Ann school community will complete the Move to Grow greening tree activity to see if there are more walkers compared to fall 2022.
