School bus safety was highlighted today, as the First Student Safety Dog Bus tour visited St. Ursula Catholic School.
Chatham was one of 12 stops across North America for the tour, which reinforces safe school-bus behaviour through fun, interactive activities.
"Student safety is at the heart of everything we do," says First Student Area General Manager Peter McGlynn. "The Safety Dog Bus Tour teaches elementary students about appropriate school bus behaviour. We make it fun, interactive and memorable!"
