National Child Protection Week - 5-12 September
The theme of this year's National Child Protection Week was:
Every child in every community, needs a fair go.
To treat all of Australia's children fairly, we need to make sure every family and community has what kids need to thrive and be healthy.
To support the theme, a series of webinars, designed by the National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN), are available to view online.
Topics include what a community needs to do for every child to thrive, how communication can shape early childhood outcomes, supporting pride in culture, respectful relationships, the impact of COVID-19 on children's mental health and ensuring a fair go for children and young people with disabilities.

Safeguarding Sunday - 12 September 2021
On Sunday 12 September, the Catholic Church in Australia marked Safeguarding Sunday, during which we pray for those who have been abused, their families and supporters. Jubilee Parish is committed to the care, well-being and protection of children, young people and people at risk in the community. Child protection and the dignity of every person is the responsibility of all of us and we endorse practices that make the parish and its ministries the safest possible place for children and people at risk.
