Constable Crompton visited our Centre recently and gave the preschoolers and school-age children a presentation on how Police Officers keep our streets safe.
Children listened well and asked a lot of questions. One of the questions that was brought up was about bullying. Constable Crompton talked about the dangers of bullying and not to get involved in this behavior if they saw it happening. He advised Tawa friends to inform an adult if they saw this happening.
As the children were enthralled by the presentation, they were invited to visit the Police Station. Of course, we were thrilled with this opportunity and visited the next day. The Tawa kids were given a tour of the Policed Station and were told that we never want to see them locked up in the cells when they grow up. This had a big impact and children were heard talking about always being “good guys” so that they could enjoy their freedom.
