Care in safe hands

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

THE Fre­man­tle Dock­ers are taught how to tackle and fall prop­erly to help them stay safe on the field. Now three play­ers are work­ing with the Con­sta­ble Care Safety Foun­da­tion to teach chil­dren how to stay safe in ev­ery­day life.

Stephen Hill, Aaron Sandi­lands and Luke McPhar­lin are am­bas­sadors for the or­gan­i­sa­tion, work­ing with Con­sta­ble Care to help teach young fans about harm preven­tion.

The Foun­da­tion de­liv­ers a range of ed­u­ca­tional safety pro­grams for up to 150,000 chil­dren a year, in­clud­ing pup­pet shows for younger chil­dren and in­ter­ac­tive fo­rum theatre for teenagers.

Hill said he grew up learn­ing the Con­sta­ble Care mes­sage and said it re­mained vi­tal for young chil­dren across WA.

“It’s great to see them in­volved with club events like the school hol­i­day clinic, and I’m sure the kids that come learn a great deal from their pup­pet shows.”
