Bamaga Primary Campus Observes Day for Daniel

31/10/2013
It was a sea of red at Bamaga Primary on Friday 25th October in recognition of Day for Daniel. All our students and staff wore red clothes and our undercovered area was decorated with red balloons. Our Adopt a Cop came and spoke to the students on Parade about how they can keep themselves safe and the teachers also did some classroom activities on the subject.
 
The Daniel Morcombe Foundation held the first Day for Daniel in November 2005. The Day for Daniel 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 all children to ‘Recognise, React and Report’ if they feel something is not right.
 
The objectives of Day for Daniel 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 educate and equip individuals and communities with knowledge and skills to understand child safety and protection requirements and empower them to take action.
•To provide FREE safety and educational material.
•To honour the memory of Daniel Morcombe.
•To have over one million people Australia Wide 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.
