Students and staff of Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic Secondary School were joined by several members of the Greater Sudbury Police Service before heading out on their snowmobile ride.

February 24, 2010 - Several students from Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic Secondary School had an amazing opportunity on Wednesday, February 24, 2010 when they got the chance to enjoy a day of snowmobile riding for their winter carnival activity. Students that chose the ride as their option met with staff and several Greater Sudbury Regional Police officers in the parking lot of the Knights of Columbus Hall in Hanmer before heading out for a day long ride that involved a stop at Rocky's restaurant where they enjoyed a lunch provided by the Sudbury District Health Unit. The day before the ride, the students spent the entire day being inserviced on different health and safety topics related to safe snowmobile riding. The students listened to presentations on survival techniques, how to read maps, safety on the trails, as well as one woman's experience of being hit by a speeding snowmachine. The officers were some of the presenters of the day and felt that it was very important to have the students ride informed of all safety information. “ I want the kids to go out informed and educated.” said Constable Bilcik. “We went out on the weekend to make sure the trail was safe and by educating the students, it is the only we can do rides like this.” This ride along program with the police provided the students with the confidence that they were learning important lessons to keep them safe on the trails. As one father dropped off his son before the ride, it was evident he was aware of the theme of the day as he patted him on the back and said, “Have fun, son... and be safe!”
