The 2015 National Child Protection Week will kick off on Father’s Day, Sunday 6 September, inviting all Australians to play their part to promote the safety and wellbeing of children and young people. “Protecting children is everyone’s business.”

Thank you for registering National Child Protection Week events

NAPCAN is thrilled with the response from the community to host National Child Protection Week events including Virtual Classroom Presentations from the eSafety Commission, to be held in four states. The topics will include an online introduction to the eSafety Commission to support schools to develop and deliver their cybersafety programs, communicating online and secret security business.

NAPCAN will be hosting a Tasmanian Play Your Part Awards Event featuring guest speaker, National Children’s Commissioner, Megan Mitchell, with support from the Department of Health and Human Services. A Taking Action to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse event will be held in the State Library of Victoria. The seminar features speakers from the Australian Institute of Family Studies, Life Without Barriers, Girl Guides Victoria and CyberSafety Solutions.

A Walk for William coordinated by Hamilton Community Preschool will be take place on Friday 11 September. “We are hoping by building a sense of community with our children and families that we can play a small part in raising awareness of William Tyrrell’s disappearance and at the same time reinforce the importance of child protection in our community.”

The Ballina Domestic Violence Liaison Committee is hosting a Child Protection is Everyone’s Business Event featuring children’s activities: colouring, painting, threading, play-dough, balloons, badges, pictures and stories. Goodstart Early Learning Andergrove in Queensland will be hosting a Crazy Hair Day, for people to learn more about National Child Protection Week and enjoy fun activities.
