Children learning awareness from Deborah Blackman

Sydney’s Kesser Torah College was therefore extremely fortunate to have had the services of a parent volunteer who was able to utilise her background and experience to implement the Child Protection Program for Year K students, which is part of the Board of Studies PDHPE curriculum.

Mrs Deborah Blackman, a qualified and experienced social worker, and an active member of the Jewish Alliance Against Family Violence, once again volunteered her time to facilitate the 6-week program. Mrs Blackman used stories and age-appropriate techniques to present her subject matter in a non-threatening and constructive forum, teaching the children how to recognise and respond to unsafe situations, seek assistance effectively, and establish and maintain positive relationships.

Bringing to the program her in-depth understanding of the culture and sensitivities of the school community, Mrs Blackman was able to utilise her unique skillset to construct a unique program for the young students. KTC is extremely fortunate to have had the services of a volunteer of Mrs Blackman’s calibre.
