The Grade 7 and Grade 9 Physical Education classes had the unique opportunity to partake in a number of self-defense workshops, provided by SAFE International.

These workshops were designed specifically for young women and encourage students to develop inner strength and confidence as well as physical skills to add to their personal safety toolbox.

SAFE International provided our students with real-life experiences that teenagers may encounter. Students were taught how to recognize and avoid potentially dangerous situations and were instructed in practical physical self-defense if they can't avoid a violent encounter. Students found the use of strike focus mitts particularly useful when it came to re-enacting a variety of potential dangerous scenarios.
