Baby koala didn’t listen to her mum. She climbed down the tree and Dingo bit her. She was afraid. She was unsafe. She told her mum. She felt good after that

What parents, facilitators & teachers say

I have always been worried as to how and when to approach the issue of child protection with my children. The ACBS Preschool Program and preschool staff have relieved me of this concern, as I didn’t realise you could start these talks as early as preschool age

West Kempsey
The ACBS Preschool Program makes our child protection programming so easy to link to the EYLF, Emergent Curriculum and NQS
-
Macleay Island Preschool
The costumes and puppets are a wonderful resource to further reinforce the protective behaviours concepts of the ACBS Preschool Program

Love Bites

What the kids say

A young male after watching the LOVE BiTES film on sexual assault, said he would have behaved in the same way prior to participating in session and he would have been unaware he was committing a crime. But now that he knew it was wrong, there was no way he would behave that way

Fresh, inspiring and interesting to get outside facilitators and workers to talk about these things with us

I felt good that we were able to talk and not be judged
-
Young Person
I really enjoyed the program. It’s important to know what to do if you are in one of those situations and what to do to prevent and help those who suffer
-
Young Person
I think talking about it is good and creates awareness, I feel more comfortable talking about it now
-
Young Person
We knew about some of these issues but nobody really talks about it. By talking about domestic violence and sexual assault we really did learn something new
-
Young Person
Young people wanted more time to discuss the issues and in more detail

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP... and to all the other fantastic presenters you managed to bring. The program was well received by the students and we look forward to seeing the material produced. This will be a program that we hope to have delivered every year at the school

We talk openly about such matters with kids more now than before. One relationship broke up and then they got back together but under a new set of respect and safety "rules". I think the impact certainly was more on the young women - but the blokes are starting to think more
