Walk n’ Roll Week/Car Free Day Road Closure

The Walk ‘n Roll to School Celebration Week is coming back from May 28 to June 1. It is a joint initiative taken by UBC Campus and Community Planning, UNA and the school. During the week, parent volunteers will lead walking bus from different neighbourhoods to Norma Rose Point school.  Here is the schedule:

May 28 – May 31

  • 8:30 am Wesbrook Village (Menchie’s) 
  • 8:30 am Old Barn Community Centre
  • 8:45 am Acadia Park Commonsblock

June 1 (Car Free Day)

  • 8:00 am Wesbrook Village (Menchie’s)

As parents, if you are able to join the morning walk with our children from Wesbrook Village, Old Barn Community Centre, or Acadia Park, please contact Qiuning Wang at qiuning.wang@myuna.ca

Lots of prizes to be won including scooters, skateboards, bike locks and more: To win, make sure to collect a sticker each day you walk ‘n roll to school. Make your trip to school awesome by joining one of our walking school buses from various neighbourhoods, and commute to school with your friends! The division that turns in the most passports will win an ice cream party. If you are a parent interested in volunteering, please email mustafa.akhtar@ubc.ca.

Car Free Morning: On June 1, between 8:00 and 10:00 AM, Ortona Road will be closed for vehicular access. Come early to school on Friday to check out fun activities and games, check out the fire truck and meet a RCMP officer. See road closure notification for alternative drop-off points.

Krank it up! Join us to decorate and fix-up your bike to ride the beautiful trails and cyclist-friendly routes at UBC.
