Daniel Morcombe Foundation delivers free child safety lesson to millions of Aussie kids
Our community partner the Daniel Morcombe Foundation is expanding Australia’s Biggest Child Safety Lesson this year as it looks to bolster the community safety net.
The first lesson will be livestreamed across the country on Thursday 25 June and will focus on online safety strategies for children aged 8 to 12 years.
The Foundation hopes that millions of Aussie kids will take part in the virtual safety lesson to help them understand how they cankeep safe both physically and in the online world. The lesson has been created specifically for primary school-aged children.
You can register now to watch the livestream, which will be available on the Daniel Morcombe Foundation page at 10am AEST on 25 June 2020. Registration is free and participants will be able to access an exclusive preview of the lesson prior to the event.
Another edition of Australia’s Biggest Child Safety Lesson for children aged 4 to 7 years will be conducted in September this year.
All Aussie kids deserve to feel safe in their neighborhoods and online spaces and we’re passionate about helping the Daniel Morcombe Foundation achieve its goals.
Last July, we donated $300,000 through Golden Casket to help the Foundation continue its important work providing personal safety education, assistance to victims of crime, and support for families of missing persons.
We believe our communities should be places for fun and optimism, and somewhere people can come together to share amazing moments. Australia’s Biggest Child Safety Lesson plays an important part in helping this become a reality.
To further support this vision for safer communities, we recently announced an expansion to our deployment of the Amber Alert system.
The Amber Alert broadcast is an important channel used by state policing bodies to share information about missing or abducted children with the public. There are around 15 Ambers Alerts issued each year and our network of about 3,800 retail outlets is an incredible resource to circulate urgent details to as many people, as soon as possible.
