Today, Urmish Shaikh from Vista Heights Public School will be recognized for her efforts with the CAA School Safety Patroller of the Year Award. The Grade 5 Mississauga student beat out 76 other applicants from across southern Ontario.
“On behalf of CAA South Central Ontario (CAA SCO), it is a privilege to honour Urmish Shaikh with the School Safety Patroller of the Year Award,” said Leslie Rocha, Community Relations Specialist, CAA SCO. “The deserving student takes her bus patroller responsibilities to heart. She is always on time and prepared to take on the new challenges of the day.”
Urmish is kind, yet firm when dealing with rule infractions on the bus. She always tells her fellow classmates when their actions are unsafe and reminds them of the rules when they forget.
“The Peel District School Board is pleased and proud to congratulate Urmish Shaikh, a Grade 5 student at Vista Heights Public School, on being named the recipient of the CAA School Safety Patroller of the Year Award. This award recognizes a school safety patroller that exhibits exceptional dedication, leadership and responsibility in carrying out the important duties of a safety patroller,” said Janet McDougald, Chair, Peel District School Board.
