Congratulations to St. Martin of Tours on earning a Gold Healthy School Certification from OPHEA!

St. Martin of Tours is a Catholic Elementary School located in the Cherry Heights neighbourhood in Hamilton’s ward 10. According to data from the HWCDSB, there are 292 students who attend St. Martin of Tours from grades JK-8. 61% are within walking distance, 18% are bussed to school, and 21% 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 74% of students live within 1.6km from school, and that 47% of students usually walk or wheel to school. We would like to see this number go from 47% to 74%.

Here's what's happening at St. Martin of Tours CES

Current activities:

  • Wear yellow days starting in April – organized and promoted by the Walk and Roll club
  • Some Walk and Roll club students 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.
