National Day of Action
The National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence (NDA) is an important day to mark Australian school communities standing together against bullying and violence. In March, each year, St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School Take Action Together and empower students to rally and unite their ideas and actions to address bullying.
The NDA creates positive change for students, staff and the overall school environment. Bullying should be taken seriously. Children and young people need to know that they are being heard and that their feelings matter, and that their issue will be investigated respectfully.
Day for Daniel
Day for Daniel is Australia’s largest day of action to raise awareness for child safety, protection, and harm prevention. Held annually on the last Friday of October, Day for Daniel honours the memory of Daniel Morcombe. The theme is ‘Wear Red, Educate and Donate’. Parents, carers, and educators are encouraged to start a conversation with children and young people about personal safety.
At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary school we conduct child safety education activities, using the Foundation’s free Keeping Kids Safe Resources. Day for Daniel is the Daniel Morcombe Foundation’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Fundraising helps them continue our free education programs, resource development, and support for young victims of crime.
