Constable Care Child Safety Foundation delivered safety lessons to children from five local schools while on tour in the Margaret River region last week.
Constable Care Child Safety Foundation performers Andrew Dawson and Trudi Mann used puppetry and theatre to teach students about important topics such as bullying, protective behaviours, road safety and first aid.
Thanks to a partnership with WA Police Force, Constable Care performances are free to WA schools.
Performer Trudi Mann said it was a privilege to be able to bring safety messages to local children.
"The students responded really well, especially to our performance 'Frenemies,' which encourages students think about bullying, empathy, and how to have respectful friendships," she said.
Constable Care Child Safety Foundation, which is currently celebrating 30 years of keeping WA kids safe, visits more than 20,000 students living in remote and regional areas of Western Australia.
"Regional communities often miss out on city-based programs, but the local kids still experience the same social issues and peer pressures as their peers in metropolitan areas." said Constable Care Child Safety Foundation CEO David Gribble.
"As a state-wide service we ensure country children don't miss out by scheduling visits to regional and remote areas continually throughout the school year. In fact, more than 25 per cent of our in-school programs are delivered outside the Perth metro area, in places such as the Kimberley, Pilbara, Goldfields and Great Southern."
Constable Care Child Safety Foundation visited Margaret River Independent School, Rapids Landing Primary School, St Thomas More Catholic Primary School and Karridale Primary School.
