For the Mayor of the City of Canterbury Bankstown, nothing is more important than the safety and protection of his three children. That’s why Clr Khal Asfour will take part in the annual National Child Protection Week, from 2-9 September.
"We will be reminding everyone that the wellbeing and safety of children is not only a parent’s responsibility but everyone’s," Mayor Asfour said.
Council, is partnering with the National Association for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN), to work towards promoting and advocating for children’s rights.
Activities at Council’s four Children’s Centres will include:
"One of the continued goals we are striving for in Canterbury-Bankstown’s 10-year visionary plan, CBCity 2028, is to make CBCity child-safe and child-friendly," Mayor Asfour said.
To assist in this mission, Council’s Children’s Services staff have participated in the State Government’s Child Safe workshops and have copies of its SAFE book series at each centre.
The books contain protective behaviour messages for children aged 2-6 and support the rights of children and promote them having a voice.
In addition, Council will soon be conducting a survey to find out how it can better service and protect children in the community.
All funds raised during National Child Protection Week support Bravehearts’ education program Ditto’s Keep Safe Adventure Show.
