In a galaxy far, far away, 22 elementary schools from Scarborough along with the Toronto Police Service converged upon Cedarbrae Collegiate Institute during TDSB’s Mental Health week for the second annual “May The Police Fourth Be With You” event.

With much anticipation and community cooperation, the day was kicked-off by a special address to students from local schools by Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders.  With the first week of May focusing on mental health and well-being across the Toronto District School Board, the Toronto Police Service was pleased to join educators for a fun and informative day that showcased student achievements and build on a sense of community with support from the police.

With the directive to build relations, meet new people and take on new challenges, the 100 student leaders from Cedarbrae Collegiate Institute and Bendale Technical Institute guided over 400 grades 4 and 5 students through the Student Police Academy.

The day included interactive activities that showcased members of various police service units. Students participated in a variety of activities including Fit Pin and Shuttle Run. They also got to cheer on TDSB staff as they participated in an Obstacle Race against the officers.

Through teamwork, creativity and mindfulness and all the while having fun, students made their way through the Police Academy and took another step forward in mental health and wellbeing as students build a stronger community.

May the Police Fourth Be With You!
