Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
The Daniel Morcombe Foundation has produced the Keeping Kids Safe resource to support students to Recognise, React and Report when they feel unsafe. Developing an understanding of respectful relationships is also a key learning area within the resource. Keeping Kids Safe is age and developmentally appropriate and contains short video vignettes to promote classroom discussion and completion of in class activity sheets.
All children and young people have the right to be safe. Keeping Kids Safe resources contribute to the prevention of child sexual abuse and support the development of healthy relationships free from violence.
Evidence demonstrates that children and young people who are provided with sequential age appropriate personal safety education throughout their schooling are more likely to develop skills that will promote health and safety into adulthood.
The Daniel Morcombe Foundation would like to acknowledge and thank the following individuals and organisations for their participation in the creation of the ‘Keeping Kids Safe’ resources for children and young people with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage:
