Student Wellness & Bullying Intervention Hotline

SCITS has recently implemented a telephone option for student wellness and bullying concerns. To reach the hotline, users of the service can call the school at 519-336-6131 and when the auto attendant answers, choose option 5.

Callers will be greeted with the following message, after which they can record a message:

You have reached the Student Wellness and Bullying Intervention Hotline for Sarnia Collegiate. We invite you to share a concern on behalf of a student's well-being, or to report a bullying situation. At Sarnia Collegiate we take student safety and well-being seriously and your message will be addressed. Please leave a detailed message. We respect your choice to report anonymously if that's your wish. Otherwise, you're invited to leave us your name and telephone number for follow-up if necessary. We remind all callers that we expect any and all reports to be valid and truthful.

As always, SCITS parents and students are welcome to speak with their teachers and school administration when issues of student wellness or bullying arise. These incidents will be addressed using the Lambton Kent District School board Safe Schools Policy & Regulations, available at www.lkdsb.net.

 

Video: Leaving A Legacy

SCITS Communications Technology students attended a field trip where they participated in the making of a video about SCITS.

SCITS Virtual Memorial

Over 100 former SCITS students died in the service of Canada during World War II. As part of SCITS' 90th anniversary celebrations, a new project honours their memory at www.lkdsb.net/scits/memorial.

Over 100 former students are honoured on the website which links the names of the former SCITS students to information found on the Veterans Affairs Canada website. The available information includes rank, service number, birth date, age at death, date of death, force, unit, and division, as well as parents' names, burial information, and sometimes collections of photographs or newspaper clippings.

The idea came from some of the students who had seen the names engraved on a memorial plaque displayed outside the school's main office, and also had heard the names read out loud at the school's annual Remembrance Day service.
