This week is National Child Protection Week (6-12 September) and celebrate its 30th year with the theme: Putting children first.
National Child Protection Week is all about celebrating the many ways – big and small – that everyone in the community can make a difference in the life of a child. Most importantly, we need to recognise that parenting is like sailing a boat; it takes skill and practice, anyone can encounter rough waters from time to time, and we can all do our bit to help build the safe harbours and lighthouses that all families need.
The Missionary Society of St. Columban in Australia (the Society) is actively committed to fostering communities of safeguarding that recognise and uphold the dignity and rights of all children.
