2019 was a milestone year for Constable Care Child Safety Foundation. It marked a huge three decades of keeping WA kids and young people safe!
1989 was the year the Berlin Wall came down, Bob Hawke was Prime Minister and WA’s Formula 1 ace Daniel Ricciardo was born. It was also the year Constable Care came to WA with the aim of improving child safety.
Police and Road Safety Minister Michelle Roberts congratulated the Foundation on its significant milestone.
“For 30 years Constable Care has been serving and supporting our young people here in Western Australia."
Arility launched in the UK!
Our safety education app 'Arility' launched in the United Kingdom this year. Road Safety GB now uses this innovative technology to bring road safety lessons to up to 7 million UK primary school students.
Arility is free to Australian primary schools and uses augmented reality to deliver engaging safety information to children aged 4-11 years on classroom iPads.
'Standing Out' premiere
We premiered our new anti-bulllying performance 'Standing Out' at the State Theatre Centre in June. The performance explores aggression and bullying, especially in regards to LGBTQI+ students. It is quickly becoming one of our most sought-after incursions.
First regional tour for secondary students
Thanks to a grant from Telethon and Aurizon, our secondary school team was thrilled to be able to travel to Kalgoorlie to tackle social issues such as substance abuse, bullying and respectful relationships with interactive theatre. We also ran a two week problem solving intensive with Kalgoorlie Boulder Community High School, using film and art to explore issues of bullying and belonging.
