2017 Whole School Beach Excursion

Mackellar Primary students attended the whole school excursion to Altona Beach. What a perfect day it was! The weather was magnificent and the staff, students and parents had a fantastic time building sand castles and sculptures, and splashing around in the water. As you can see from the photos below,  the students really enjoyed the day.

Child Safe Standards

 

Mackellar Primary School is committed to ensuring that all children are safe and protected from any form of child abuse. We have zero tolerance of child abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously and consistently with our robust policies and procedures. We have legal and moral obligations to contact authorities if we are concerned about a child’s safety, which we follow rigorously.

This year, the Victorian Government introduced the Child Safe Standards, which are compulsory minimum standards for all Victorian schools, to ensure they are well prepared to protect children from abuse and neglect.

To create and maintain a child safe organisation, we have developed:

Strategies to embed an organisational culture of child safety, including through effective leadership arrangements

A child safe policy and statement of commitment to child safety

A code of conduct that establishes clear expectations for appropriate behaviour with children

Screening, supervision, training and other human resources practices that reduce the risk of child abuse by new and existing personnel

Processes for responding to and reporting suspected child abuse

Strategies to identify and reduce or remove risks of child abuse, and

Strategies to promote the participation and empowerment of children.

Policies related to the Child Safe Standards may be found on our school website in the near future.  For further information, please refer to
