In its second year, the Kids, Cops and Computers Program has expanded from Masset and Port Clements into Sandspit and Queen Charlotte Village.
The RCMP Foundation hosted the program that had young participants complete a five-class police-instructed curriculum, which focuses on online safety, cyber bullying, dating violence, family violence, and self-esteem.
Cst. Michael Hull with the Masset RCMP said that all Grade 7 students on the island receive a free laptop (Chromebook) after completing a presentation based on one of the topics.
There were 13 participants at Tahaygen Elementary and three in Port Clements. On June 4, 11 of the 13 students at Tahaygen presented “some really great presentations and we shared a meal with students, parents, and teachers, courtesy of the Tahaygen Parent Advisory Council,” Cst. Hull said via email.
“The students were excited to finally receive (and get to take home) their laptops.”
