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.
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.
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:

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.
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.
The final puzzle, Où va Alexandre?, goes over all the rules and behaviours covered in the previous puzzles. It targets young people aged 10 to 12.
The PowerPoint presentation complements the Génivélo cartoon.
