The Sudbury Catholic District School Board will be presenting a Lifesavers course to train Lunchroom Supervisors in the various aspects of first aid on Friday, October 21, 2005 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the St. John Ambulance Training Centre, 2935 Bancroft Drive.|
The three-hour Lifesaver course has been set up specifically for the lunchroom supervisors in the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. The initial concept to provide a training course for lunchroom supervisors came from Immaculate Catholic School parents and Catholic School Council. The Sudbury Catholic District School Board in conjunction with the Regional Catholic School Council is presenting this training course as a follow up to the Lifesavers course provided to the Board's secretaries in August 2005.
"The board takes the safety of our students very seriously," stated Zandra Zubac, Director of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. "Our Board is one of the first boards in the province to train lunchroom supervisors and the very first in the region."
To compliment the Lifesavers course, the Board has also agreed to purchase portable first aid kits to be used by lunch room supervisors (inside or outside), First Aid posters to be posted in all classrooms, reference manuals displayed at the office and mobile First Aid kits with a manual for all field trips and outside activities.
