Walking School Bus Expands

We are proud to announce that Robert Bateman Public School's Walking School Bus (WSB) has expanded and there will now be 2 adult leaders walking up to 20 students to school every morning. In addition, the route has grown and will start on Blohm at Forestglade. This program is run by the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA), in partnership with Ottawa Public Health, the Ottawa Safety Council and Green Communities Canada. Just like the adult crossing guards, the WSB has paid leaders who have been trained, screened and first-aid certified to walk with the students following a specific route and schedule to school. Walking to school is a safe, convenient, healthy and fun way for your child to travel to school with their friends. It also increases the recommended daily physical activity, which improves overall health.

Check out the OSTA website to watch a video of the RBPS Walking School Bus in action at http://www.ottawaschoolbus.ca/wsb you will also find other important information and the registration form on the site. In addition you will find the WSB route map for our school, or simply click here: WSB map

NOTE: This program is available ONLY in the morning; arrangements must be made for students at the end of the school day.
