Children and Safety in Australia: Safety Online
1 Jul. 2018
As children grow, their curiosity about the world can sometimes expose them to dangers. Parents and care-givers will not always be there to protect them every second of the day so teaching them about staying safe, healthy and happy is important for their development. This series will provide children in Primary School with strategies for responding to situations in which they feel unsafe, worried or upset. Recognising when someone else needs a helping hand, and knowing what to do in an emergency, are also vital skills that children can learn as they grow into citizens of the future.
Australian Curriculum topics covered in this series:
• Personal safety
• Recognising danger
• Making healthy choices
• Responding to others in need
• Online safety for children
