Sydney Catholic Schools is proud to support National Child Protection Week, 4-10 September 2016
An initiative of the National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN), the week raises awareness of the rights of all children to be safe and well and encourages more adults to play their part in making this a reality.
Focusing on the theme of ‘Stronger Communities, Safer Children’, it puts the spotlight on the importance and value of connected communities in keeping children and young people safe and well.
Dr Dan White, Executive Director of Sydney Catholic Schools (SCS) added his support for the week and its theme, saying research shows that communities where children are seen and heard, where their participation is valued, and where their families can gain the support they need, are stronger communities that help to keep children safe and well.
We are dedicated to upholding the values and practices that create safe learning environments for students.
“At SCS we are dedicated to upholding the values and practices that create safe learning environments for students,” Dr White said.
