BCE students wear red this Day for Daniel!


St Joseph​'s Primary School Nambour students.

Brisbane Catholic Education (BCE) students have donned red this Daniel Morcombe Day (28 October) to help raise awareness for child safety.  
Their efforts are also raising much needed funds for the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, which develops education resources to keep children safe and to support young victims of crime. 

Held annually on the last Friday of October, which in 2022 is Friday 28th, Day for Daniel honours the memory of Daniel Morcombe, with this year’s theme brave conversations. 

BCE Manager of Employee Relations & Student Protection Colin O’Neill said, “the day was a huge success.” 

“This Day for Daniel BCE student's student wore red, got educated about personal safety, while also raising funds for the Daniel Morcombe Foundation,” he said. 

“At BCE we take child safety seriously, and I am so proud to see so many of our schools taking part in Day for Daniel, helping to not only raise funds to keep up this important initiative, but students also spent the day getting educated about their own personal safety.” 

Colin added BCE is committed to protecting students. 

“BCE’s commitment to the protection of students is based on our belief that each person is made in the image of God, and our ethos is to provide a safe and supportive environment for all students, and days like these help us accomplish this goal,” he said. 

BCE encourages all schools to educate by utilising the support and resources offered by the Daniel Morecombe Foundation including;  
  • Using the Keeping Kids Safe Resources and Day for Daniel Lesson Plans. 
  • Watching Australia’s Biggest Child Safety Lesson.
  • Inviting a Police Officer or child safety expert to talk at their school.
