STUDENTS GIVE THEIR SUPPORT TO DAY FOR DANIEL
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.
