Australia’s Biggest Child Safety Lesson (ABCSL) is a free livestreamed event that engages children across the country in vital personal safety education. In National Child Protection Week, the Daniel Morcombe Foundation will livestream two brand new video safety lessons to children around the country.
Preventing child sexual abuse is everybody’s responsibility. Teaching children that they have the right to be safe, that they are allowed to say no to anything or anyone that makes them uncomfortable, and that there are adults who will help them has the power to prevent harm. These messages also empower children who are experiencing abuse to tell someone who can help.
In fact, help-seeking is the theme of Australia’s Biggest Child Safety Lesson for both 4-7-year-olds and 8-12-year-olds this year. In these age-appropriate, engaging, and positive lessons, children will learn skills and strategies to seek help if they ever feel unsafe. The lessons reframe accessing support as a truly heroic and courageous act.
Australia’s Biggest Child Safety Lesson for early years and junior primary students (4-7 years old) will go live at 9am AEST on Tuesday 7 September (approx 10 mins long). This is followed by a new resource for upper primary students (8-12 years old) at 10am AEST (approx 25 mins long).
