Four students from Coronach School recently participated in the Saskatchewan Safety Council Babysitting Course, sponsored by the Coronach Kinettes.
The students attended four sessions at the Coronach Library on Sunday afternoons beginning on April 29 and completed a number of tasks before a final test.
As part of the course, students had to care for an egg for a week and also had to babysit under the supervision of a parent.
In the classroom, the students studied lessons on first aid, fire safety, child care and play and safety smarts.
Angela Gent, a Primary Care Paramedic for the Coronach Ambulance service visited the classroom to instruct the First Aid lesson.
In order to pass the course, students had to complete all the assignments and get a minimum of 80 per cent on the final test.
Students passing the course received thier test back in the mail with a babysitter’s card.
