SCDSB Proud Partner in RISK WATCH
Educators at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board work hard to help students prepare for a bright and challenging future. For this reason, teaching children the skills and strategies they require to make educated decisions to avoid preventable injury and death has always been of paramount importance.
Students from Ms. Marcon’s Gr. 5/6 class at St. Michael Catholic School learned first hand how to minimize their risks through a presentation on “RISK WATCH” delivered by the City of Greater Sudbury’s Fire and Police Services recently.
Leo Frappier, Public Safety Officer, Greater Sudbury Fire Services and Denise Fraser, School Liaison Officer, Greater Sudbury Police Force presented the theme of personal safety through the use of the innovative “Hazard House.”
Risk Watch is an injury prevention program from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). “It is our hope that all students within the Sudbury Catholic District School Board will learn and reinforce behaviours to prevent injury,” states Sandra St. Denis, Principal of St. Michael Catholic School. The program also provides parents and caregivers with additional information about injury prevention.
