Advocating for Child Safety

Advocating for Child Safety

By Ms Tracey Markovic, Assistant Head of Junior School Operations

On Wednesday, 27 October, the spirit of community support was alive and well in the Junior School as students and staff participated in Day for Daniel.

Day for Daniel is an annual event dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, an organisation committed to educating children about personal safety. The fundraiser is named in honour of Daniel Morcombe, a young Australian boy who tragically lost his life in 2003.

Junior School students and staff embraced the fundraiser with boundless enthusiasm. They donned red and denim to show their support and dedication to keeping children safe. Students participated in various activities and initiatives throughout the day aimed at building child safety awareness.

Day for Daniel provided an invaluable opportunity for Junior School students to learn about the significance of child safety. It is a reminder that education and awareness can help protect our children and create a safer community for all.
