P.A.R.T.Y. PROGRAM RAISES AWARENESS FOR STUDENTS

The P.A.R.T.Y (Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth) Program was designed to raise awareness among teenagers to the sometimes tragic consequences of certain risk-taking behaviours.  Manning’s P.AR.T.Y Program focused on students in grades 9 & 10 and included a key note presentation from Kiley Geddie, interactive sessions designed to get students thinking about choices and consequences and a mock collision with distracted driving as the cause of the accident.  The afternoon wrapped up with de-briefing for all who were involved.

We would like to thank the organizers, guest speakers, emergency services personnel for allowing our students to have the opportunity to take part in this program.  Special thanks go out to:
