Ensuring Bike Safety for Students in Killarney

St. Joseph student Pearl Knopczyk and O.P.P. officer Rodney Petroski inspect Pearl's bike to ensure it is safe.

June 22, 2012 -
One of the major signs of summer is the visible presence of bikes on the roads. This is the same in Killarney. To ensure the safety of all of her students, St. Joseph Catholic Elementary teacher Irene Dembek invited O.P.P. officer Rodney Petroski and Sudbury and District Health Unit Health Promotion Worker Daniel Prévost into the school to talk about bike safety. All of the school’s students were encouraged to bring their bikes in and each bike was inspected to ensure a safe ride for the student. “With all of my students, I want to ensure that their safety is first and foremost,” Dembek stated. “With our community partnerships with the Ontario Provincial Police and the Sudbury and District Health Unit, we work together to make sure our students understand the importance of bike and road safety – it is something I do every year.”
