Our Grade 6 students will participate in the B.R.A.V.O. program under the direction of our designated Halton Regional Police liaison officer.
In 2012, the Halton Regional Police Service undertook a review of the D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program. This led to the development of a new, ‘made in Halton’ program known as B.R.A.V.O. (Building Respect, Attitudes and Values with Others).
Created in partnership with the Halton District School Board, the Halton Catholic District School Board, and members of the Halton Independent Schools, B.R.A.V.O. is taught by a team of Elementary School Liaison Officers (ESLOs) to Grade 6 students regionwide.
It consists of eight lessons, followed by a culminating activity and celebration. The program builds on topics presented in D.A.R.E. such as decision making, peer relationships and substance abuse (tobacco, marihuana and alcohol), and features new areas of study, including bullying, cyber bullying, Internet safety, social media, and youth and the law.
