Day for Daniel

28/10/2016
​The annual Day for Daniel was held on Friday 28th of October.

The Day for Daniel is a National Day of Action to raise awareness of child safety, protection and harm prevention. It is about educating children and adults about keeping kids safe through child safety and protection initiatives. It aims to help empower our children to Recognise, React and Report if they feel something is not right.

Wear Red and Educate is the theme of Day for Daniel, so we are asking that students wear something red on Friday 28th of October. Students are able to wear a red shirt, red socks or red hair ties to raise awareness. Please make sure students are still wearing school shorts and shoes. No red zinc or hairspray.

The objectives of Day for Daniel are:

  • To raise awareness about child safety and protection and to promote a safer community for children.
  • To educate children regarding their personal safety and empower them to Recognise, React and Report.
  • To honour the memory of Daniel Morcombe.
  • To have over 1 million people Australia Wide to participate in Day for Daniel.

Day for Daniel is also an opportunity for Australians to make a statement that crimes against children are not acceptable in modern Australia.​
