We are offering the Canadian Red Cross Be Safe! Program to children in Kindergarten and Grade 1:

The Be Safe! program begins with a brief lesson explaining that all children have rights. Children learn that safe adults are people who respect and know children's rights. Do you know what the UN Convention on the Rights of Child says? Here it is in Child friendly language: http://www.redcross.ca/crc/documents/What-We-Do/Violence-Bullying/rights-eng.pdf

Children in Grades 2 & 3 are learning the Mind Up Curriculum. For more information about this program here is a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=115&v=K68BSYpymmA
