Caption: Students at Agnes Hodge Public School join the LCBO in sharing messages against drinking and driving this holiday season.
In some communities, elementary school students add pictures and messages to plain single-bottle bags reminding people not to drink and drive.
Agnes Hodge Grade 5 students joined the team of promoters in their community and crafted creative messages for brown paper bags, which will be displayed and distributed at local LCBO stores to customers during the holidays.
Students are very creative and can come up with compelling images. Many messages carry a call to action not to drink and drive or some thank people for not drinking and driving.
“This was a great opportunity for the students to share their message to be safe and not drink and drive over the holidays,” said Grade 5 Teacher Kirsten Gagne. “It offered a real-life experience to support the Grade 5 Health curriculum, where students learn about the effects of alcohol.”
The bags were dropped off at the Market Street LCBO in Brantford on November 30 and will be on display and used for customer purchases throughout the holidays.
“The students has a great time coming up with slogans and individually designing each bag,” added Gange.
