STU­DENTS GIVE THEIR SUP­PORT TO DAY FOR DANIEL

South Burnett Times - - SOUTH BURNETT SCHOOL NEWS -

EACH year Kin­garoy State School sup­ports Day for Daniel.

Even though we were a week late this year, stu­dents and staff wore red on Fri­day, Novem­ber 3, in sup­port of Day for Daniel.

Stu­dents do­nated a gold coin and spent some time through­out the day walk­ing to sup­port this wor­thy cause, rais­ing aware­ness about child safety while teach­ing our stu­dents about per­sonal safety, body clues, re­act­ing to body clues and how to re­port when you feel un­safe.

Teach­ers also utilised re­sources from the Daniel Mor­combe Foun­da­tion to de­liver ac­tiv­i­ties in class­rooms to re­in­force the key aims of the Day for Daniel event.

Kin­garoy State School sup­ports sev­eral events through­out the school year in­clud­ing the Chil­dren’s Can­cer In­sti­tute Fun Ride, which sup­ports re­search into child­hood can­cers, while the Re­lay for Life and the Ride for Re­lay work to as­sist fam­i­lies and in­di­vid­u­als who are bat­tling can­cer.

It is im­por­tant to teach our chil­dren to be­come in­volved in com­mu­nity events, vol­un­teer­ing their time and giv­ing to a cause when the re­ward is in the giv­ing.

All of these events are very well sup­ported by the stu­dents, staff and par­ents on our school com­mu­nity and we hope to be in­volved in these for many years to come.
