With the help of Clare Taylor and Tatiana Wood from Bay Island Parents Facebook Group, as well as Gaynor Brennan from Macleay Island State School, we are very happy to announce an upcoming visit from Ditto and the gang from Bravehearts.
Bravehearts aims to empower, educate and protect by providing healing and support, engendering child sexual assault prevention and protection strategies; advocating for understanding and promoting increased education and research.
Here is an excerpt from the letter which will be sent out to parents:
On Monday 28th July 2014 your child will have the opportunity to experience our Personal Safety Education Program ‘The Ditto Show’. Bravehearts are extremely proud of this program and believe that by providing children with the basic principles of personal safety, we are providing them with the tools to stay safe.
The ‘Ditto Show’ is live performance with ‘Ditto’ being the star attraction. The show runs for 35 minutes (and we have a 20 minute one for our under 5’s). Our program has been delivered throughout other states in Australia since 2006 empowering over 300,000 children. ‘Ditto’, the Bravehearts’ mascot comes to life as the star of Ditto’s Keep Safe Adventure Education Program to ensure the program is delivered in a fun, interactive and engaging manner.
