Treasuring our children
Centacare Catholic Family Services launched a week of awareness around the theme, Children are our Treasures, with a morning tea at Mary MacKillop Plaza on September 5. "If everyone really believed that children are our most precious of all treasures, how then would our families, communities and society live out this belief?" asked assistant director Pauline Connelly.
This year’s focus is on building stronger communities in which children are seen and heard, where their participation is valued and where families can be supported to keep young people safe.
National Child Protection Week is held annually to raise awareness that every Australian can do something to keep children and young people safe in their community.
