Constable Care Taking Care 5

Everyone has the right to feel safe.

This is one of our school’s rights and responsibilities, and a key message in all of Constable Care’s school workshops. On Wednesday 25 May we welcomed back the Constable Care team who presented two workshops to students.

The Juniors watched Fun Scary where the key concepts of protective behaviours were explored through a puppet show and use of song – with the message that all kids should feel safe.

Middle and Upper School students watched “Trending”, where the performers used theatre to explore cyberbullying and the importance of online respect and consent. The actors encouraged audience interaction, creating space for students to suggest improved behaviours from the characters, then resetting the scene with those improvements.

Click on this link eSafety Commissioner to report any concerns you might have, as their creed is:

“Helping Australians have safer and more positive experiences online.”

Constable Care has been a familiar visitor over the years and students enjoyed being able to attend a whole-school incursion in the undercover area again.
