“The Road Safety Resource is an important learning tool that will help students learn road safety skills and injury prevention at all ages. These skills are critical because we know that physical activity, such as walking to school or active transportation, contributes to student well-being and is ultimately part of a Healthy School. By giving our learners this knowledge at an early age, we are helping to promote achievement and well-being for all students across Ontario.”
