Parents and Carers
You may see some media coverage regarding recent incidents where children were approached by a man they did not know. This occurred in the suburbs of Isaacs and Monash. You can access the ACT Policing media release on their website: https://policenews.act.gov.au/news/media-releases/call-witnesses-following-two-child-approaches-0 .
This is a good reminder to help our children understand the importance of stranger safety and the need to report any unusual incidents or approaches to staff immediately.
As the school holidays will begin soon, we encourage you to have conversations with your children about moving safely in and around the community and what to do if they ever feel unsafe. Doing so will help children understand the importance of stranger safety in and out of school hours, and also the importance of reporting any unusual incidents or approaches to parents/carers or school staff immediately.
Police encourage parents, guardians and teachers to make sure children understand how to keep themselves safe, particularly when walking to and from school, and to teach children about stranger safety. Information on ways to help children to stay safe is available on the http://www.constablekenny.org.au/. In addition, the Safety4Kids is a non-government website that has useful information and links.
If you become aware of an incident, or notice anyone acting suspiciously around a school or child, contact police immediately on 131 444 or in the case of an emergency call 000. The quicker police can respond and attend to an incident of this nature, the quicker they can target the area and surrounds.
Supporting the Mental Health of Your Teen
Researchers at the Australian National University are conducting an anonymous online survey to explore how parents can support their child’s mental health. If you are the parent of a young person aged 12 to 18 years, they would like to hear from you!
