G. C. Huston wins annual Bike to School Challenge

The annual Bike to School Challenge was slightly down in numbers, possibly due to weather, however over 1,000 trips by bike were made from June 10-14 and monitored as students traveled to and from school.

G.C. Huston Public School students were the champions with an incredible 50% participation rate. Northport Elementary followed closely behind with 38% of students participating and both ecole PESCS and St. Joseph’s Catholic School had students taking part throughout the week.

                                                                             “We are Number ONE!”

G.C. Huston will be awarded a bicycle repair station and, as runners-up, Northport Elementary earned another tree for their school yard courtesy of Trees for Saugeen.

Other class prizes included a pizza party from Boston Pizza and free swim passes donated by the Town.

The Bike to School Challenge has been well-received in the community over the last three years and next year, Bike to School will be held June 8-12, 2020.
