More than 300 students from Sir James Douglas took part

Drivers on Dallas Road experienced some congestion Friday morning but surprisingly, it wasn’t due to construction. More than 300 students from Kindergarten to Grade 5 met at Clover Point for the Super Hero Bike Parade.

Principle Murray Harris says the parade was a great way to encourage kids to start thinking about reducing their carbon footprint and how to be active in their daily life. Adding that the school experiences a heavy amount of traffic congestion at both drop off and pick up times.

“So if we can disperse those cars and have fewer of them coming to school, it’s safer for the kids and better for our neighbours,” says Harris.
