This year’s Providence Hebrew Day School Academic Fair was all about safety. The annual event took place on June 12 and was held in partnership with the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island. Displays and interactive activities were designed by students in Kindergarten to Grade Eight, based on the “Save-A-Life: Teaching our children the A-B-C’s of saving a life” curriculum developed by Vaad Refuah. The 10 lessons include “How to Recognize an Emergency,” “First Aid for Nosebleeds” and “Basic House Fire Safety.”
In addition to the student-created displays, there were displays and presentations by the Providence Fire Department, Providence Police Department, Dwares JCC Fitness Staff, The Jewish Alliance Staff, Providence Bicycle, a Certified Child Passenger safety technician, an eye glasses Gemach, and others. The first 34 students (Kindergarten to Grade Eight) who attended received a free bike lock compliments of the Jewish Alliance, PHDS and Providence Bicycle.
