Smart Kids Learn Safety Tips

February 2, 2005 - The Sudbury Catholic District School Board in conjunction with the
Ontario Teachers Insurance Plan (OTIP) played host to a Smart Kids Child Safety presentation recently at Corpus Christi Catholic School. Robin MacDonald, Marketing Manager for OTIP (adjacent photo), illustrated a number of key safety tips that students should be aware of through the use a highly informative video which included a “talking dog.” The presentation was followed by a question and answer period which helped students to learn about such topics as;

• Home Smarts - How to stay safe when students are home alone
• Street Smarts - What to do when they are approached by a stranger
• School Smarts - What children should do if they are being bullied at
• Internet Smarts - How to keep safe in a virtual world

“As a result of this video program, thousands of elementary teachers and pupils will have access to this valuable learning resource,” stated Robin MacDonald, OTIP’s Marketing Manager. “In this latest session, students watched different scenarios followed by brief discussions to help them relate to potentially dangerous situations. The ultimate goal of the Smart Kids Child Safety Program is to allow the students to develop the awareness and confidence required to keep them safe, whethr it be at home, school, on the street or on the internet.”

In addition to providing each school in Ontario with a free copy of the video, OTIP consulted with several elementary teachers to develop
primary and junior level Smart Kids lesson plans. The free videos have been made available thanks to the Sudbury Unit of the Ontario English Teacher’s Association (OECTA) and OTIP.
