April 11, 2013 - The students in the Grade 1 class at St. Bernadette Catholic French Immersion School have been participating in the Greater Sudbury Fire Services program called, "The Adventures of Sparky the Travelling Fire Dog". This program began in 2012 with grade one classes and involves a visit to the classroom from a Public Safety Officer who drops off a package containing: one Sparky Stuffed Toy, One Scrap Book, One Tote Bag and 35 Safety Checklists. Each child is given an opportunity to take Sparky home and complete the fire safety checklist with the involvement of their family. Firefighters return to the classroom in the spring to review the scrapbooks, talk about firefighting, show off their gear and conduct a fire truck tour. This program covers, reading ,writing, art, community helpers, health, public speaking, family involvement not to mention adding a little excitement to the classroom routine! Also, the program will reduce the student's chances of experiencing a fire and will also ensure that families will have early warning should a fire occur through thoroughly checking and addressing smoke alarm issues in the home.
