SantaOP.jpgThis week, some of Santa's helpers did some visiting in RETSD! A communications regiment of the Canadian Armed Forces set up a command post next to some of our schools for Operation Radio Santa, a public outreach program that teaches kids about peacekeeping and emergency response situations.

Classes got to go inside the command post tent or truck and ask the soldiers questions about their duties and about the regiment's special friend… Santa Claus! The soldiers used a two-way radio connected to the North Pole to allow the excited kids to take turns talking to St. Nick himself! Such an honour.
