St. Joseph is a Catholic Elementary School located in the Kirkendall neighbourhood in Hamilton’s ward 1. According to data from the HWCDSB, there are 414 students who attend St. Joseph from grades JK-8. 42% are within walking distance, 47% are bussed to school, and 11% 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 57% of students live within 1.6km from school, and that 53% of students usually walk or wheel to school. We would like to see this number go from 53% to 57%.
