HIGH school students will benefit from a partnership between the City of Wanneroo and Constable Care Child Safety Foundation.

Having chosen the City for an enhanced partnership because of its long-time support, the foundation will deliver its Theatrical Response Group program to a local secondary school.

The 12-week educational theatre initiative will be developed in collaboration with the selected school to address students’ needs and concerns.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the program was an engaging way to explore some of the issues facing young people.

“Topics selected can include alcohol and drugs, bullying, gang violence, criminality, domestic violence, sexuality, mental health, conflict resolution, smoking or cultural intolerance,” she said.

“It will help students come up with strategies and solutions for addressing problems and practice constructive ways to resolve them in their wider community.”

Foundation chief executive David Gribble said he was grateful for the City’s support.

“This increased level of partnering with the City of Wanneroo will allow us to reach many more young people with our safety education programs, working with them on important life skills that will serve them well in the future,” he said.
