Led Central Public School’s School Street – a street closure program that restricts vehicle traffic and encourages active school travel at the start and end of the school day.

This work has been featured in the Kingston Whig-Standard (September 2, 2022) and The Skeleton Press, Issue 11, Fall 2022 (page 30).
