Constable Care comes to the rescue with home based learning

Exciting new online videos and activities to keep children and teenagers engaged in learning during coronavirus isolation

With the majority of Western Australian children now being schooled at home due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Constable Care Child Safety Foundation has swiftly adapted part of its business model to assist parents and teachers looking to keep students engaged from Term Two.

The Foundation ceased all school-based incursions and excursions several weeks ago due to the escalating health crisis and rapidly repurposed the Constable Care Safety School building in Maylands into a dedicated video production suite.

Filming is underway on a wide range of child and youth safety related online video content which parents and teachers will be able to use as online learning becomes a major focus in the months ahead.

 

For lower and upper primary school students, the videos are produced in an entertaining broadcast style format with education modules containing crafts and activity-based learning. Engaging interactive games and playbacks on key mental health issues form part of the online resources for secondary school students.

“Our team of professional actors and filmmakers have been working hard to develop a range of new content and resources designed to reinforce the messages of the current COVID-19 crisis as well as converting our existing crime prevention products into online lessons,” said Constable Care CEO David Gribble.

Although we can no longer deliver safety education through our traditional face-to-face method, we have moved quickly to ensure we can continue to reach our audience through a whole new and exciting medium.”

The new online content will cover crime prevention education programs, mental health concerns and other important COVID-19 safety issues such as handwashing and hygiene, social distancing and peer support.

 

Available for parents and teachers to use when school recommences in Term Two, the new resources complement the Foundation’s existing range of online products.

These include the award-winning, augmented-reality safety app Arility for primary school students and ‘choose your adventure’ style video games for older students, under the Foundation’s Your Call youth brand.

“As a much loved and trusted safety education provider, Constable Care is here to help parents and teachers get through this new world of learning during the coronavirus pandemic,” Mr Gribble said.

The new resources will be available on www.cccsf.org.au/primary and www.cccsf.org.au/secondary
