Holy Spirit College proudly welcomed Bruce and Denise Morcombe on Monday 31 August for a presentation to all Year 7 students.  They presented information on ‘Child Safety Awareness’ and provide tips to students on how to stay safe.

Some suggestions include that:

  • students listen to their body cues and feelings.
  • students create a safety network list of people they can talk to.
  • students and their families create family passwords to ensure children remain safe.

Students in Years 7 to 9 will commence the Daniel Morcombe Child Safety Curriculum as part of their Health and Physical Education lessons.  The Department of Education, Training and Employment, in partnership with the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, has developed the Daniel Morcombe Child Safety Curriculum for Queensland students.  The content of the curriculum is divided into three parts – Recognise, React and Report.  The aims are to develop student skills and knowledge which can be applied in a range of safety scenarios that young people may encounter.
