On Wednesday April 13 the Gympie District Crime Prevention Team paid a visit to the Fraser Coast Home Schooling students and parents at One Mile Oval, Gympie.
The children who live in town, Tin Can Bay, Rainbow Beach, Traveston, as well as other rural areas, range from prep age through to high school age.
As these children are home schooled they don’t have the benefit of the government/private schools who have allocated Adopt-a-Cops that visit to give regular talks on many topics such as cyber/social media safety, personal safety, support networks, bullying, drugs, alcohol and road safety.
The students and parents were together for a sports day so it was the perfect opportunity for us to have a chat. The presentations were very well received with the students (and parents) learning a lot of information to take away with them.
The challenge now is for our budding students to use their new knowledge and create some great posters for a display in Gympie Central Shopping Centre on Wednesday April 20.
Keep your eyes open for the posters near the escalators leading from the car park to the shops and look out for our follow up post next week with this great art work.
