March 11, 2016 - The students at St. David Catholic Elementary School have been learning about the dangers of fast moving water in their community. Students have been reminded that even city ditches filled with water can pose a danger. As spring approaches and the weather continues to get warmer, the amount of water in our creeks, streams and ditches continues to rise. Students were reminded about Adam Dickie, a youth in the community who tragically drown in Junction Creek due to fast-rising water and about the educational campaign that supports the prevention of such tragedies.

Students were cautioned about playing near creeks and streams and reminded to tell their parents where they are playing and with who. "It is so important for all students to understand the seriousness of being around fast moving water, especially in the spring. We hope that our students become leaders in our community and share this message of safety with other children and family members." said Ginny Long, St. David School grade 3/4 teacher.
