Day for Daniel

28/10/2016
 Friday 28 October we will be participating in “Day for Daniel”.  All students and staff are encouraged to wear a red t-shirt or top keeping in line with sun safety requirements, to raise awareness about “keeping kids safe”.  This will not be a fundraiser so no gold coin is required.
The Daniel Morcombe Foundation held the first Day for Daniel in November 2005.  It is a National Day of Action to raise awareness of child safety, protection and harm prevention.
It is about educating children and adults about keeping kids safe through child safety and protection initiatives.  It aims to help empower our children to Recognise, React and Report if they feel something is not right.
Wear Red and Educate is the theme for Day for Daniel and the objectives are:
• To raise awareness about child safety and protection and to promote a safer community for children.
• To educate children regarding their personal safety and empower them to Recognise, React and Report.
• To provide FREE safety and educational material.
• To honour the memory of Daniel Morcombe.
• To have over 1 million people Australia Wide to participate in Day for Daniel.
Day for Daniel is also an opportunity for Australians to make a statement that crimes against children are not acceptable in modern Australia.
