Safety drive in school visits
The Constable Care Child Safety Foundation visited primary schools in Busselton, Vasse and Dunsborough last week to share important messages about bullying, protective behaviours, first aid and internet safety.
“Regional communities often miss out on city-based programs, but the local kids still experience the same social issues and pressures as their peers in metropolitan areas,” Foundation chief executive David Gribble said.
“As a Statewide service, we ensure country children don’t miss out by scheduling visits to regional and remote areas continually throughout the school year.
“In fact, more than 25 per cent of our in-school programs are delivered outside the Perth metro area, in places such as the Kimberley, Pilbara, Goldfields-Esperance and Great Southern.”
Constable Care Child Safety Foundation embarks on up to 16 tours of regional Western Australia each year, visiting more than 100 schools outside of Perth and using puppetry and theatre to convey their messages.
