In the fall of 2020, we conducted the School Walk survey, along with on the ground observations, to 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!
