Wolf Creek Public Schools’ School Resources Program was honoured at the Alberta School Boards Association’s fall general meeting in November, receving the ASBA Zone 4 Friends of Education Award.

The SROs play a pivotal role in encouraging positive and healthy recreational activities for children and youth.

Their engagement ranges from addressing critical issues like bullying and cyberbullying to imparting essential knowledge about topics such as vaping, drugs, personal boundaries, and traffic laws. They also serve as mentors, role models and forge vital relationships with students.
