"GROW UP WITH SAFETY" School Resource Introduced
An innovative injury prevention program for Saskatchewan youth was officially unveiled today. It's called Grow up with Safety and will be used in the classroom.
Grow up with Safety is a set of teaching units for Grades 1-9 specifically designed to compliment the existing Saskatchewan health education curriculum. Students learn how to respond appropriately to potential hazards, like those associated with vehicles, animals and fire.
"By teaching our children to think and act safely at home, at school and in their communities, we can reduce incidents of child injury in the province," Labour Minister David Forbes said. "This program brings together teachers, children, parents and others to reinforce that knowledge every step of the way. It's a clear step our government is taking to make life here better for families and build a better future here for youth."
Grow Up With Safety was officially unveiled by the Minister at Pilot Butte School this morning. The launch included interactive displays featuring safety themes and staff from different safety organizations.
