CAA School Safety Patrol® 2019 Jamboree Events
This year’s annual CAA School Safety Patrol Jamboree events were a huge success. 714 patrollers and chaperones participated, which is the highest attendance rate we’ve ever had! The events help celebrate the outstanding volunteer work our CAA School Safety patrollers do to promote pedestrian, traffic, and school zone safety in the province.
We hosted two Jamboree events to accommodate both Southern and Northern Saskatchewan patrollers who attended from schools in; Grenfell, Lanigan, Maple Creek, Moose Jaw, Naicam, North Battleford, Prince Albert, Regina, Rosetown, Saskatoon, Spiritwood, Wakaw, Weyburn, Wynyard, and Yorkton.
The Southern Saskatchewan CAA School Safety Patrol Jamboree was hosted in Regina at the Saskatchewan Science Centre on May 6, 2019. The fun filled day included; free time to explore the interactive exhibits, an IMAX show, as well as presentations from Zane Buchanan, the 2019 Saskatchewanderer and Corporal Mel Zurevinsky from RCMP “F” Division. A Hip-Hop lesson was a favourite amongst patrollers put on by Eddy Alvaro and his colleague from VIBES YQR.
The Northern Saskatchewan CAA School Safety Patrol Jamboree was hosted in Saskatoon at the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo on May 14, 2019. Patrollers and chaperones had scavenger hunts to help them explore the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo while learning about all the animals and their habitats. There were presentations from Saskatoon Police Service, and the 2019 Saskatchewanderer, Zane Buchanan. Amanda Murray from def SOL performed a Hip-Hop demonstration and taught the patrollers and chaperones some very cool dance moves.

CAA Saskatchewan School Safety Patrol®
CAA School Safety Patrollers have shared with CAA that they gain confidence, learn responsibility, and leadership through the program and that they model these traits to other students in their communities. CAA patrollers help keep Saskatchewan school zones safe by helping their peers cross the streets safely on their routes to and from school. They work together to learn more about pedestrian and traffic safety. The program is successful thanks to the combined support of CAA Saskatchewan, municipal police, RCMP, school divisions, teachers, parents, and the student volunteer patrollers.
CAA Saskatchewan has coordinated and managed the CAA School Safety Patrol program since 1951. For over 60 years CAA School Safety Patrollers have helped keep Saskatchewan school zones safe. There are approximately 4,600 patrollers, from 160 schools representing 70 communities in our province. Before participating in the program, patrollers receive training with complimentary materials provided by CAA including patroller handbooks, stop paddles, vests, and whistles. Local law enforcement and a designated CAA School Safety Patrol coordinator from the registered school provides the classroom training. It’s important for all CAA School Safety Patrol Coordinators to register their schools annually with CAA Saskatchewan. This will help ensure coordinators receive updates and new information about the CAA School Safety Patrol program.
