This term 200 Year 1 students at Morayfield State School and Caboolture State School will learn how to keep themselves safe, thanks to a free program supported by Brisbane North PHN and Act for Kids.
Learn to be safe with Emmy and friends is a five week program which equips children with lifelong practical skills to proactively protect themselves from abuse.
The program has so far been delivered to over 7000 kids across Australia, and feedback from students, parents and teachers has been very positive, said Dr Neil Carrington, CEO Act for Kids.
The program empowers kids to keep themselves safe in a fun, interactive way, by enhancing their knowledge and skills, said Dr Carrington.
