St. Bernadette is a Catholic Elementary School located in the Highland Park neighbourhood in Hamilton’s ward 13. According to data from the HWCDSB, there are 245 students who attend St. Bernadette from grades JK-8. 49% are within walking distance, 43% are bussed to school, and 8% are out of catchment; 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 61% of students live within 1.6km from school, and that 38% of students usually walk or wheel to school. We would like to see this number go from 38% to 61%.
