On Friday, November 1, Ferny Grove State School students and Adopt-a-Cop Senior Constable Wanda Beckett, took part in ‘Walk For Daniel’.
Ferny Grove State School has undertaken this march annually for 10 years as part of Day For Daniel, in memory of Daniel Morcombe who was tragically killed 16 years ago.
Day for Daniel is a chance to raise awareness about child safety and protective behaviours.
After a walk around the school in a sea of red, student councillors shared messages of child safety and Detective Sergeant Frank Jefferies of the Ferny Grove CPIU spoke to the students to reinforce the three R’s of safety – Recognise, React and Report.
This event is so important in supporting the spread of child safety messages in the community, with positive safety conversations as well as honouring the memory of Daniel Morcombe.Inner West Road Policing Unit (RPU), Ferny Grove Child Protection and Investigation Unit (CPIU) and Officer in Charge of Ferny Grove Police Station Senior Sergeant Jeannie Murray also attended the event.
