Keeping Ourselves Safe Parent Meeting

Over the next few weeks in your child’s class we will be teaching the unit Knowing What to Do; Me Mōhio Kia Pēhea. This is part of the personal safety programme Keeping Ourselves Safe.

Keeping Ourselves Safe has been designed to give children the skills to cope in situations involving abuse.

It has three overall aims:

  • to develop and strengthen children’s skills to keep themselves safe with other people;
  • to support and encourage abused children to get help from caring adults;
  • to make teachers and parents more aware of the need to keep children safe from abuse by adults or other children.

Knowing What to Do; Me Mōhio Kia Pēhea will be taught by your child’s teacher, with help from the local Police Education Officer, Paul Stanko, as required.

To be successful, Keeping Ourselves Safe needs your help and support. Your child will have Home Book Activities to work on with you.

It is important that you participate as much as possible and talk to your child about what they have been learning. This will help reinforce the messages the school is giving, and help your child to use his or her new skills with confidence.

A parent and caregiver meeting will be held as follows:

Date: Thursday 9th March 2017
Time: 7.00pm
Venue: Matipo Primary School Staffroom

Please contact the school if you would like a pamphlet about the programme.
