Educational approach

The various safety concepts shown in On the Road of Dragons are presented by an activity leader, who is obviously overwhelmed by the skills of Jeremy and Julie, the two children who are accompanying him.

Cartoon

In the cartoon, the dragon symbolizes the dangers children must watch out for when walking. In the first part, Jeremy, a 7-year-old boy, accompanies the host and puts safe pedestrian behaviour into practice. Then Julie, a girl of the same age, takes her turn with the host to guide us through school transportation.

School Safety Patrol

Thousands of young volunteer students are trained to ensure the safety of their classmates! Youngsters between 5 and 12 years of age are vulnerable because they have difficulty assessing the speed and distance of vehicles.

Goal of the school safety patrol

The safety patrol program aims to encourage school children to exercise caution… on the road, in the school yard or around school, or when riding the school bus.

Useful information

The school safety patrol: since the 1920s!

The concept of the school safety patrol was developed in the 1920s by CAA-Québec. The patrol then continued its mission in Québec elementary schools in partnership with the SAAQ.

Recruiting young patrollers

Young patrollers are recruited from the 6th grade and trained on safe practices by the person in charge at their school. Patrollers are like the big brothers and sisters of the other school children.

Schools can create up to 3 types of safety patroller:

  • pedestrian safety patrollers
  • school bus safety patrollers
  • school patrollers
Useful information

For more information on how to implement the school safety patrol program at your school, contact CAA-Québec's road safety department:

Les énigmes de Génivélo (in French only)

Certain rules must be obeyed when it comes to cycling; it is not a just a game. This is the lesson young cyclists aged 7 to 12 will learn with the Les énigmes de Génivélo kit.

Les énigmes de Génivélo: 5 topics and 5 puzzles

The Génivélo kit explores 5 topics related to road safety rules to obey and proper behaviour to practise, and includes just as many puzzles to solve.

  • Road signs and traffic signals – Le devoir de Yan
  • Visibility… for cyclists as well as motorists – Catherine, l'apprentie mécano
  • Wearing a helmet – Fragile comme un œuf!
  • Traffic rules – Le jeu des vrais ou faux de Karine
