Students in grade 7 complete a bullying activity with Sergeant Marc Guerin.

December 23, 2016 - Grades 7 and 8 students at St. Charles College met with the officers from Greater Sudbury Police Services to learn about the dangers of social media. School Liason Officer Hally Wilmott and Sergeant Marc Guerin talked to the students about being cautious when using the Internet.

One activity forced the students to come up with rules about the school playground and they discussed how those same rules apply to the Internet playground.

Another activity focused on bullying and the scars it leaves. Officer Guerin crushed a can and asked the students to consider how that can cannot ever be wrinkle free again.

Mrs. Sarah Bock says the presentation was “eye opening in many ways and forced students to think about social media in a new way attributing it to the school playground and what goes on there.”
