Safe Communities Day 2019





Wellington County, October 3, 2019 - Safe Communities Wellington County (SCWC) held its 5th annual Safe Communities Day on October 3, 2019 at The Royal Distributing Athletic Performance Centre in Marden.  Four Hundred grades 5 & 6 students from across Wellington County attended Safe Communities Day.  Students visited 18 stations teaching them about Safety and Prevention from organizations across Wellington County and Guelph area.  New this Year, Safe Communities Wellington County recruited 34 Grade 8 student volunteers to lead groups from station to station.  "It gave the grade 8's an opportunity to show how capable they are at being leaders and role models for younger students," states Program Coordinator, Christine Veit, "In my eyes, it was a success, and we hope to continue this leadership opportunity for them."  

This year, each scheduled stop had a presentation or activity that lasted 9 minutes; providing some great information for the students to bring back to their schools, homes, and communities. 

Thank you to all of the organizations who make Safe Communities Day possible.  You come out to educate the students year after year and help the students become Safety Ambassadors!
