After Four Evaluation Survey

If one or more of your children participated in OSCA's After Four program, or one of our holiday, March Break, or PD Day programs in the 2013/2014 school year, we would like to know what you thought!


OSCA Program Evaluation

It's that time of year again! We look forward to hearing your feedback regarding your experience participating in OSCA programs. Please take a few moments to fill out our online survey (remember that you may only fill out one survey per program). In an effort to engage our program users and gain valuable feedback this will assist us in improving user experience, we look forward to receiving your input.

Last week to participate! Winter/Spring 2014 Survey (Survey available until July 14, 2014)


Safer Solution For Bank Street Bridge

Lower speed limit and signage to make bridge crossings more comfortable for cyclists, motorists, and pedestrians

Bank Street Bridge 285The way cyclists and motorists have been expected to share the road over the Bank Street Bridge, with its constrained lane widths, is unacceptable.

During peak periods, cyclists feel squeezed; when traffic volume is less, they are unnerved by the excessive speed of many vehicles passing mere centimetres from their shoulders. With the temporary lane reduction during Lansdowne construction, northbound motorists are currently not supposed to pass cyclists on the bridge, yet many do. This situation is made worse by the fact that the northbound curbside lane over the Bank Street Bridge is currently closed due to construction on the east side of Bank Street.


Inspire Us!

windsor-park-partyEver wonder how the OSCA Special Events Committee comes up with all the ideas for our community special events? Do we analyze our dreams for signs? induce trances? read runes? Not quite that intense, we simply sit in a group and talk and exchange ideas. Crazy right?

On June 14, 2014, from 9am-12pm, we will be holding our planning session (venue to be announced) to come up with ideas for our next year of OSCA events. We are always looking for new ideas and new members. If you have an idea you think would be perfect, want to join our group, or both, then please get in touch with us.
