A number of parents have formed committees to improve the student experience and safety at Nightingale. We currently have three committees; 

  1. Active Transportation​ works with the City of Vancouver on improving safety in the neighbourhood around our school to encourage walking and cycling to school

  2. ​​​​Seismic Upgrades​ is pursuing seismic upgrades for our school and investigating the installation of an early warning system in the meantime

  3. Before and After School Care committee is advocating and finding solutions for the ongoing shortage of childcare spaces before and after school.

See below for more information and updates on each.

Active Transportation​ 

The City of Vancouver Active Transportation initiative has received great input from surveys and in-classroom data.  Our PAC is working closely to ensure parent input is present for safe commutes to school.  A list of initiatives​ for short-term and long-term fixes has been compiled for PAC comment.

Please take some time to review and provide feedback to our parent champion on this initiative (Solomon Wong) at by Fri Feb 23, 2018

Some parents have kindly volunteered to help with this PAC committee -- please also let Solomon know if you are interested to work with Principal Samiei and staff to increase our bike/walk to school activities May 28-Jun 1, 2018.  Some planning in April will be useful to make sure that we keep up the great work of diversifying our commute to school.

The committee is focusing on the following three areas:

  1. Investigate the early warning system

  2. Advocate for early warning & seismic upgrade

  3. Mitigate any potential harm by employing solutions with a structural engineer (i.e securing potential hazardous materials in the school)​​
