The SCSTC invites parents/guardians and their children to take part in the FREE one (1) hour informative First Rider Program

No registration is required. Any Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) or Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board

(SMCDSB) Student attending school in Simcoe County are invited to attend any of the sessions be it at a SCDSB or SMCDSB school.
