national kidsafe day
Tuesday 23rd October 2012
The aim of National Kidsafe Day is to increase awareness of unintentional childhood injuries and their prevention, as well as the valuable work of Kidsafe - the Child Accident Prevention Foundation of Australia, in public education, advocacy and research into the causes and prevention of unintentional childhood injury.
National Kidsafe Day is held during Children's Week; this provides a great opportunity for considering the safety of our children in our adult focused world during a week that celebrates our children.
On National Kidsafe Day - Tuesday October 23, 2012 we celebrated several things including: 'The Wiggles' new road safety song was released as part of National Kidsafe Day celebrations and we announced the Winners of the Kidsafe 2012 National Playspace Design Awards. A summary of the fantastic events run on Nationa Kidsafe Day will be coming soon.
