Safe and Caring Week – Sept 19-23rd

The Toronto District School Board has designated September 12th  to 23th  “Safe & Caring Week”.

The Swansea Safe Schools Committee has come up with some activities that we will focus on during this week:

  • Random Acts of Kindness – i.e. discuss / write about acts of kindness they receive or show, a number of activities could be found on this website : http://www.randomactsofkindness.org/Educators/School-Activity-Ideas/
  • The guidance councillor will visit some classes to talk with students about appropriate behaviour, etc.
  • A fire drill and a lock down drill
  • Safe drop off in the mornings and pick up after school / traffic blitz- parking etc.
  • Street-proofing
  • Parents need to alert the school immediately if they see suspicious individuals/ activities in our school community

We will continue to focus on anti- bullying strategies and ways how everyone can be safe and feel welcome in our school community.

Parents are reminded to be alert – if you see suspicious individuals or activities in our school community please contact the school or the police.

Remember Caring and Safety start here.
