Peel Police - Region Wide Summer Safe Driving Campaign
Mississauga – The Divisional Neighbourhood Policing Units will be initiating a Summer Driving Campaign which will promote pedestrian safety in school zones through strict enforcement throughout the summer from Monday June 23, to Friday June 27.
When summer starts, we often times lose sight of the fact that students attend schools and community areas for summer camps and programs. This campaign will focus on those areas.
The project was designed to target our schools and community safety zones, to send a clear message that aggressive driving and the disregard for community safety will not be tolerated. This in turn would provide the community with a greater sense of safety and provide students of our local schools with a safe travelling environment.
Some driving tips for motorists in school zones and residential neighbourhoods:
- Reduce speed in schools zones.
- Be aware of school zone signage.
- Be ready to stop at all times. Children do not always notice oncoming traffic.
- Always try to make eye contact with children wanting to cross the road.
- Be patient and wait for children to complete their crossing before proceeding.
- Obey all yield, stop and traffic signal controls. It's the law.
- Stop when directed to do so by a crossing guard.
When crossing intersections with or without signals, students should:
- Stop before stepping into road
- Increase visibility and indicate crossing intention to motorists
- Wait for the pedestrian walk signal
- Look in all directions before crossing
- Stop, Look and Listen for traffic
- Cross safely when the road is clear
- Walk, don't run across the road
- Where possible, use the buddy system
- Watch for turning vehicles
The Peel Regional Police urges motorists to drive safely and responsibly with a reminder to all road users that "Road Safety is a shared responsibility”.

Put Yer Pinkies Up
On December 6th, 1989, in a university in Montreal, a man walked in with a gun. He ordered the men in the room to move to one side of the classroom while the women were told to move to the other side. The man then turned towards the group of women and started to shoot, simply because they were women. Fourteen women were brutally murdered that day.
In rememberance and raising awareness, St. Martin Hairstyling classes painted pinkies during the lunch periods - over 400 nails!

St. Martin Drumline at The 2013 Royal Winter Fair
November 1, 2013
Was invited to be a part of the opening ceremonies at the 2013 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto. Each member of the team carried themselves in such a way that the spirit of the Mustang carried throughout the arena, causing the crowds to applaud and cheer wherever they were. To add to such an exciting day, Ontario's very own Premier, Kathleen Wynne invited the St. Martin Drumline to be the first school in the debuting of the “AMAZEing Food Journey” exhibit. Despite her busy schedule, she made sure to make each of us feel welcome and even posed to have her picture taken with us! Ms. Vitale and Mr. Silvestri are very proud of the hard work and dedication that each of these students have put into the team. Go Mustangs Go!
