School Bus and Pedestrian Safety Day
Posted on 06/29/2023

Is this your child’s first time on the bus or walking to school?  School Bus and Pedestrian Safety Awareness Day is a great opportunity for your child to learn about being safe on their way to school.

School Bus Safety

Children can take a school bus ride while their families tag along, watch an interactive school bus safety video, and enjoy games! All children entering the school system for the first time in the fall, or new residents to the area should plan to attend. The day’s activities are suitable for all elementary school-age children and everyone is welcome.

Each session takes approximately 45 minutes. The following activities are available at the school sites:

– Learn how to get on and off the bus safely
– Take a ride on the school bus
– Bus safety information and hand-outs will be provided
– Watch a school bus safety video
– Participants will receive bus safety certificates and colouring books along with the information

Young Pedestrian Safety

With the Ottawa Safety Council’s interactive pedestrian training, children practice on a make-believe cross-walk with real lights and sounds. The sessions take about 20 minutes and is facilitated by a safety specialist.
