School recognises special Day for Daniel
STUDENTS and teachers from Cannonvale State School observed the national Day for Daniel last Friday.
Bruce and Denise Morcombe visited the school earlier in the year and their safety talk had a huge impact on the children.
They learned the three R’s – recognise, react, report and they also made a family password and a hand, with five people – one for each finger and thumb, that they could trust.
Principal Angie Kelly said the bottom line was that the safety of children was paramount.
“And I think that’s the message that Denise and Bruce set out to do and that’s why we have Day for Daniel – to keep that message out there all the time,” she said.
“With the ever-growing and ever-changing world we need to be constantly thinking about how kids are safe in all sorts of situations because the goal posts are shifting, especially for schools.”
