Kids around Woodstock are being rewarded for being upstanding citizens.
WOODSTOCK - Kids around Woodstock are being rewarded for being upstanding citizens.
It's anti-bullying week, and to mark the occasion the Woodstock Police and the Woodstock Navy Vets partnered up to reward kids for good behaviour.
Woodstock Police Constable and Media and Community Service Officer Nikki VanLeeuwen says they wanted to show their appreciation in some way.
"The schools have picked an upstander - someone who has gone above and beyond to help other students in the school. We're presenting them with four free hockey passes for any game this season."
One of the kids who was singled out as being an upstanding citizen was Clark Walsh from Roch Carrier.
"He's a kid that went above and beyond," VanLeeuwen says. "He noticed another kid in his class was being picked on, and so he took this younger boy under his wing and stood up for him."
