Windsor Fire and Rescue Services is pleased to announce that the grade 5 class at McCallum School is the winner of this year’s emergency preparedness challenge and pizza party.
Students in grade 5 attending the emergency preparedness class at the Children’s Safety Village were challenged to obtain the highest score in a game of Jeopardy in order to win a pizza party for their class. Students were motivated to learn about emergency preparedness in order to gain knowledge to achieve the highest score.
Grade 5 students learn about the risks where we live and what they can do to prepare for an emergency whether they are asked to evacuate, shelter in place or are travelling in a car. This knowledge is taken home to parents to encourage families to make a plan and prepare for emergencies.
The pizza party took place Monday, June 27, 2011 at McCallum School, 4195 Milloy. Attached are some photos of the event.
Teachers can call the Children’s Safety Village of Windsor and Essex County for booking arrangements at 519-945-5500.
