Sudbury Catholic Board Partner in RISKWATCH

Jean McHarg, Academic Superintendent of Education and Pathways to Success Program for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board introduces representatives from the City of Greater Sudbury’s Fire, Police and Health and Safety Departments at a RISK WATCH workshop at St. Raphael Catholic School.

October 31, 2005 - The Sudbury Catholic District School Board is the latest Board to partner with the City of Greater Sudbury Safe Communities Coalition and the RISK WATCH program which is an injury prevention-based program stressing child safety in the home and at school.

More than 60 teachers from three schools,(St. Raphael, St. David and Pius XII Catholic Schools) took part in the one-day seminar at the inaugural RISK WATCH training partnership.

"RISK WATCH is a school-based curriculum that links teachers with community safety experts and parents," stated Academic Superintendent of Education Jean McHarg. "The curriculum is divided into five age-appropriate teaching modules, (Pre-K/Kindergarten, Grades 1-2, Grades 3-4, Grades 5-6 and Grades 7-8), each of which addresses such topics as Fire and Burn Prevention, Bike Safety, Water Safety, Poisoning Prevention and Motor Vehicle Safety, among others. This program gives children and their families the skills and knowledge they need to create safer homes and communities."
