On November 26, 2012 the morning and afternoon kindergarten classes at Prairie Waters Elementary School received a visit by some very special guests. Calgary City Police Sergeant Brent JACKLIN identified a special student in one of the kindergarten classes and in conjunction with the Chestermere RCMP, arranged for a visit by Constable Scott Campbell and Constable Garth BLAIS of the Calgary Police Service Mounted Unit. Constable CAMPBELL and Constable BLAIS rode their horses into the school parking lot for the students to meet them.
With each class, Sergeant JACKLIN, with the assistance of Constable Hilary JENNINGS (also with the Calgary Police Service), spoke to the kindergarten classes about safety and the different roles of the police. The importance of letting the students know the police are safe persons they can turn to if they are lost or need help was reinforced. Once outside Constable Alix BLAKIE (Chestermere RCMP) and Constable JENNINGS helped the young students safely meet the two police horses. The students were also shown police vehicles and given a special badge and a coloring book.
This event was a nice way for the students to meet different police officers and a great way for little persons to get close to some really big horses. It was also another seamless interaction by the Chestermere RCMP with their Calgary Police Service partners. The continued community support from the staff of the Prairie Waters Elementary School is always very much appreciated and certainly recognized during this visit.
