Floradale PS hosts Waterloo Regional Police Service badging ceremony

The Waterloo Regional Police Service (WRPS) welcomed eight new Constables on December 5th, and Floradale Public School had the privilege of hosting the ceremony.

The graduates of the Ontario Police Academy took the Oath of Office in front of family members, friends, some Floradale students, WRPS staff including Chief of Police Bryan Larkin, WRDSB Chair Kathleen Woodcock, Regional Councillor and WRPS Board Chair Tom Galloway, Regional Chair Ken Seiling, superintendent of education Elaine Ranney, and many others. We were excited to welcome back former Floradale PS student, Jeremy Bowman, and celebrate as he, and the seven others, received their badges.

We’d also like to send a special thank you to Floradale’s choir for singing O Canada.

Congratulations to Class 86!
