About the Commuter Challenge:

For the past six years, Kingston has earned first place in the Commuter Challenge national competition for a city its size! All active commuters, both current and new, can help Kingston stay in first place by registering for the 2018 Commuter Challenge!  Commuter Challenge takes place from June 3 to 9, 2018. The aim of Commuter Challenge is to encourage as many people as possible in our city to "ditch the car" for one week and take a more sustainable form of transportation  (e.g., transit, cycling, walking, carpool, etc.) for your daily commute and weekly errands, any sustainable transportation counts!  As people track their active commutes on the national Commuter Challenge website we see the total Kilometers travelled, litres of fuel saved and reduction in our carbon footprint!

Whether you are an experienced active commuter or you are just beginning to walk, cycle, carpool, or take transit on your daily commute, make sure to register to participate in the Commuter Challenge. There is no cost to participate. Once registered, you will be eligible to win great prizes and will support the City of Kingston in the national Commuter Challenge competition.

How can an unconventional art form like spoken word poetry transform a classroom and a school community? Sarah Kay is an experienced and celebrated educator with a Master’s Degree in the Art of Teaching and an Honorary Doctorate in Humane Letters. She has been the keynote speaker and facilitator of professional development at many Education Conferences including the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), the European Council of International School (ECIS), the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), the Association of International Schools in Africa (AISA), the American Montessori Society, among many others. Listen as Sarah uses her own poetry, as well as some of her personal classroom experiences to show how this art form is a revolutionary education tool for teachers across content areas and levels.

Spoken-Word Poet: Sarah Kay

Sarah Kay uses the power of spoken word to inspire creativity and self-empowerment in others. In her famous TED talk–a talk that inspired two standing ovations and has been seen by over seven million people online–she tells the story of her metamorphosis from a wide-eyed teenager soaking-in verse, to becoming a teacher who connects youth with the power of self-expression through her non-profit educational organization. A gifted artist and breathtaking performer, Sarah empowers audiences of any age and background to embrace words to find their voice.
