The grade 5 students from Kitimat’s elementary schools have celebrated their graduation from the DARE program.

DARE – Drug Awareness and Resistance Education – is a special program provided in co-operation between the RCMP and the schools where uniformed officers work with students through a curriculum designed to show the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse, to teach methods to resist using drugs and alcohol and to enable the students to take charge and make good decisions.

Graduation ceremonies were held at the end of February at Kildala, St. Anthony’s, Nechako and Roy Wilcox. Graduation for the Haisla Community School is planned for March.

The graduation ceremonies were the culmination of a 10 class program that began in October last year.

Darren the Lion, the DARE mascot, along with RCMP Staff Sergeant Corp and parents were special guests at the graduation ceremonies where students received certificates and DARE Team t-shirts and student representatives read their DARE reports to the assembly.

Kitimat RCMP would like to again congratulate the DARE graduating classes for their hard work and achievement.
