Spring Water Awareness Program

Adam-DickieThe Spring Water Awareness Program helps all students increase their understanding of the hazards associated with cold, high fast flowing water especially during the spring when snow is melting. Information is provided to schools, in French and English, especially those schools locate near rivers, creeks or lakes. Students and teachers for Kindergarten to Grade 8 can use the information materials provided to learn about making appropriate safety decisions around our watershed waterways.

Accidents are the leading cause of injury and death among children 5 to 15 years of age. Accidents can happen in a tragic moment. A concerted effort to teach students about the dangers of thin ice and fast flowing water, especially in the spring, will give children the edge they need to play safely and avoid a tragedy. Some of the information materials provided to schools is attached. It is a combination of interactive and individual activity packages which students can learn from and have fun within and outside the classroom.

During the month of March when the snow melt is in full swing, a Conservation Sudbury representative may be available to visit classrooms and do interactive presentations about water safety.
