The annual Walkathon is typically held in October to coincide with the International Walk to School Month. The walk takes place both at a nearby park and on the school’s turf. Students from all grades participate – from Kindergarten to grade 8. Each class has a theme to make the event more fun and encourage school spirit. The Walkathon is the annual BSCS fundraising initiative to support non-Board funded initiatives. The Walkathon helps to build community spirit because the event includes the participation of all students, teachers, staff and many parent volunteers.
