On Friday May 12th School District 61 and Saanich Police kicked off the Safety on Wheels program at Strawberry Vale Elementary School. This is a program that teaches kid’s the skills they need to ride to school, promotes safety and also promotes an active lifestyle. This program is taught at every elementary school in Saanich by our Saanich Police School Liaison Officers with help from our Volunteer Reserve Constables.
When we attend the schools we set up a large circuit course that consists of starting, stopping, turning, obstacle avoidance etc. All the kids are VERY excited to show off their skills and so proud of themselves after completing the course.

Happy cycling kids!
