K.B. Woodward Elementary School has been named the 2015 champion in the City of Surrey’s annual Walk & Roll to School Week.

This year, more than 12,000 students at over 30 elementary schools throughout Surrey participated in the event that encourages students and families to walk, cycle or scooter to school for a full week.

K. B. Woodward families accumulated a combined 14,000 kilometres of foot-powered propulsion to school in early October to top all others in the contest.

Mayor Linda Hepner attended a school assembly to recognize the school community and present the Golden Shoe trophy to principal Angelo Morelli. The school also received a prize pack of helmets, bike locks and bells, as well as $500.
