Child Safety Commitment

We are committed to providing a child safe environment wherein children and young people are safe and feel safe. We are committed to the safety, participation and empowerment of all children and young people. We support and respect all children and young people, as we do all people.

Our commitment and practices are inspired by Holocaust victim Henryk Goldszmit. In 1928, under the pen-name Janusz Korczak he published the ‘Declaration of Children’s Rights’, which was drawn upon by the United Nations when the Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted in 1989.
