The Do's & Don'ts of Child Safety

Each year the Child Safety Campaign of Australia publishes a safety pamphlet to remind us of the importance of Child Safety.

The accident rate, despite improving over the last few years, still remains high with hundreds of girls and boys hospitalised each year as a result of accidents.


Sadly as my own children were growing up I learnt firsthand the sadness and tragedy that can accompany a childhood accident. The pressure it places on you as a parent and the extended family cannot be underestimated. This pressure is enough reason to keep safety in our focus as teachers and parents with teaching girls and boys to be safe as a major tool to prevent accidents.


The leaflet sent home today with your newsletter is worth talking through with your children and perhaps pride of place on the refrigerator or notice board for a short period will be enough to prompt a serious reminder.


Road safety remains a serious priority, as does keeping safety with strangers. Using the Internet now poses its own specific challenges, however all of the 12 points as mentioned, deserve our consideration.


Let’s keep 2011 as safe as possible as we all journey together through another busy year.

"We have a moral responsibility to protect and educate all school children on the potential dangers that may befall them. I have asked our teachers to make sure we include the Do's and Don'ts As part of our schools curriculum. We will be following up with a class discussion after the parents have received the pamphlets. I commend you on a wonderful and most worthwhile initiative''

John Kelly Principal Deepdene State School. 1971


''The teachers found the brochure easy to use in its present format. Parents commented that it was user friendly and easy to be able to use as a discussion point with their children.
The brochure contained excellent relevant information. It was a good stimulus to classroom discussions It is a good reference document, especially prior to school holiday periods.
The brochure provided good talking points for families and the school to both interact about the same issues."
