Friday 27 October is the designated ‘Day
. This annual event, conducted by the Daniel Morcombe
Foundation, is a National Day of Action to raise awareness of child safety,
protection and harm prevention.
As a school, we join in the Day for
Daniel as part of our charity support program each year. We use Day for
Daniel to annually focus on our responsibilities in regard to student
protection. The day is not a
fundraiser and would provide our school community with the opportunity to
refresh our training in relation to student protection and raise awareness
about the importance of teaching children about their own protection.
Students are asked to wear a red shirt or
red accessories (e.g. red hairbands, red socks), along with their school
shorts/skorts, in support and recognition of this important day. They are
asked also to join in on a morning walking bus led by our school adopt-a-cop
Senior Constable Ben Harm. This walking bus will meet on Burrendah road
across from Mankinna Street at approximately 8.15am to 8.30am. Look for
where the police car is located. This walking bus will be held for the
morning only. We look forward to seeing as many of our students join in
on this walking bus in recognition of Day for Daniel.
