St. David Kindergarten student, Nico Raso, learns about the role of firefighters in his community

April 22, 2016 - Full day kindergarten students at St. David Catholic School expressed a keen interest in learning about their community and the community helpers that keep them safe. The students, with the support of their teaching teams, inquired about firefighters. The students had the opportunity to learn about the roles and responsibilities of firefighters and the jobs that exist at our local fire department.

According to Sam Theriault, the kindergarten early childhood educator, "it is through student inquiries like this, that we are were able to fully discuss and teach about fire safety, home escape routes and the importance fire alarms in our homes. The children have fun while learning with hands on manipulatives and props, but more importantly they learn valuable life lessons that they can share with others".

The kindergarten community helper inquiry was planned with the support of the Sudbury Fire Department and various volunteer firefighters. "It is when we work together with our local community that we can provide meaningful educational experiences in our school. We appreciate their support", stated Cindy Blinn, FDK teacher.
