School and childcare communities have always played an integral role in White Balloon Day. Over the past 21 years, teachers, parents, grandparents, staff and kids all over Australia have come together annually to recognise this important day on the child protection calendar.
This year Bravehearts is once again coordinating a nation-wide Chalk Art Project, asking our supporters to create chalk art murals with a White Balloon Day theme.
We want to see YOUR SCHOOL or CHILDCARE CENTRE create the best chalk mural! There are no limits to what you create, but we would love to see your whole school community involved. > CHECK OUT LAST YEAR’S SUBMISSIONS.
Here are some simple, yet creative ways your school or childcare centre could mark White Balloon Day this year.
It’s important that you register if you are planning to get involved in White Balloon Day this year. Once registered, Bravehearts can keep in touch with you about White Balloon Day activities in the lead up to the big day, as well as offer you any support you may need for your planning. It also means we can acknowledge your involvement and properly thank you for your support.
