  • Thank you to Swansea School Council for sponsoring the event, Starbucks for donating the coffee, DJ Chauhan for entertaining us, the 11th Division Police for escorting our Walking School Buses, Councilman Bill Saundercook for coming out and Mrs West and the National Anthem Choir for leading O Canada.


  • Thanks also to the entire Walk A Child to School Team – Virginia Wheeler, Karey Heard, Jill Goodridge, Michelle deBrouwer, Dave Dann, Kate Manson, Laura Gunter, Tania Hellam & Jennifer Smith.


  • Thank you to the Kindergarten and Grades 1, 2 & 3 classes for the fantastic posters that decorated the school hallways this week AND a big thank you to the Walking School Bus Leaders – Karen Ridley, Ann-Marie Klein & Laurel Lewies (Windermere), Mike Higgins and Virginia Wheeler (Beresford & Bloor) and Karey Heard (South Kingsway & Morningside).
