Constable Care visited Broome, Derby, Beagle Bay, One Arm Point and Lombadina community this week from 1 to 5 May to teach children the important skills they need to stay safe.
Constable Care Child Safety Foundation (CCCSF) performers Courtney Turner and Peter Townsend engaged children on important topics such as bullying, cultural awareness, protective behaviours, social resilience, and cyber safety at six local primary schools.
“The Kimberley region is such a beautiful place. It was a real privilege to come here and bring these important messages to the kids.” said Courtney Turner. “Our performance ‘Fair Play,’ which explores human rights and treating other people the way you want to be treated, has particularly struck a chord with the students.”
CCCSF embarks on up to 15 regional tours every year and is looking forward to returning to Derby District High School later this year for an intensive filmmaking program.
“Regional communities, particularly in remote areas, often miss out on city-based programs, but the local kids still experience the same social issues and peer pressures as their peers in metropolitan areas.” said CCCSF CEO David Gribble. “As a state-wide 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% of our in-school programs are delivered outside the Perth metro area, from the Kimberley and Pilbara to the Goldfields and Great Southern.”
Constable Care Child Safety Foundation visted Roebuck Primary School, Sacred Heart School Beagle Bay, One Arm Point Remote Community School, Djarindjin Lombadina Catholic School, Derby District High School and Cable Beach Primary School.
