2013/2014 Lead & Learns

The 2013/2014 Lead & Learns are well underway as all 33 schools in the Kids, Cops & Computers program have begun
their mentorship sessions with the Toronto Police. Taking place during lunch time, students attend six Lead & Learn 
sessions, where they will learn about a wide range of topics from the police uniform to cyber bullying. Students are also
required to then complete two assignments on two Lead & Learn topics using their laptops. This creates a great 
opportunity for our students to familiarize themselves with the Toronto police and develop their computer skills.

Our Program Manager, Olivia Sarrazin will be visiting each of the schools up until Inspiration Day and looks forward
to joining in on the Lead & Learn sessions. 

Thank you to the Toronto Police Service for their active role in the Kids, Cops & Computers program.

Kids, Cops & Computers students from St. Maria Goretti Catholic school recently spent their time spreading holiday cheer by volunteering at the local retirement home. The kids had a great time singing, handing out crafts they made for the seniors and sharing stories during snack time. It's always good to see our kids striving to become outstanding community citizens, for it is an ideal that the Program values highly. A big thank you to the kids from St. Maria Goretti for taking the time to help others enjoy the holiday season.

Happy Holidays everyone!
