STAFF and students at Oberon Public School have committed to help protect Aussie kids by supporting Bravehearts’ annual awareness and fundraising campaign White Balloon Day on September 8.
This year’s White Balloon Day campaign will feature fun activities for all ages, including the Bravehearts National Chalk Art Project and a virtual balloon race.
The Chalk Art Project will see schools and budding artists of all ages “ChalkItUp” for Aussie kids by creating a chalk mural or drawing of their own design and sharing images of their work on social media.
Cyber safety initiative CyberEcho, which has been developed with Google Australia and the Australian Federal Police, is aligned with the Australian National Curriculum and is the leading education program in Australia for teaching students and teachers how to stay safe online.
Money raised goes towards education initiatives, training programs and specialist support for kids and their families who have been affected by the crime of child sexual assault.
