Focus on: Safety

23/08/2017

​The safety of our students is of utmost importance here at Kruger!  We are constantly discussing with all of our students ways to keep safe in and around the school.

Stranger Danger is one of those topics we visit regularly. It requires vigilance and must always be something that we are prepared for as best we can. Please take the time to discuss this issue with your children to make sure they are aware how important it is for them to stay safe.

There are a range of videos, games and activities that you can access to help guide conversations about safety with your child - http://www.recognisereactreport.com.au/

What to tell your child about a stranger:

  • Tell your child to never go with a stranger or get into a stranger’s car – no matter what the stranger says.
  • Share a code word with your child that is easy for them to remember and assure them that only a trusted adult will know the code word that you both share.
  • Tell your child that strangers may make up sad stories, like looking for a lost pet, needing help with a sick child, or needing directions.
  • Tell your child that strangers may offer treats, gifts or lollies for ‘helping’ and not to accept.
  • Have your child make sure an adult they trust knows where they are at all times
  • Encourage your child if they have to walk by themselves somewhere to walk near busier roads/streets
  • If ever frightened, tell your child to go into a ‘safe place’ like a shop, police station or school and NEVER get into a car with someone they don’t know.

 

Cyber Safety is another topic that we regularly discuss with our students at school.  Most children and teenagers have or will soon have access to social media and staying safe online has never been more important!

Remember if it doesn’t feel right it probably isn’t.

  • Set your profile to PRIVATE on all social media sites, apps and chat rooms.
  • Do not give out your address, telephone number, parent's work address or telephone number and even your school name without your parent's permission.
  • Do not accept Friend' requests from people you do not personally know - even if it's a friend of a friend.
  • Have a strong password - a combination of upper and lower cases and symbols.
