An issue that sits at the forefront of every parents mind was raised at Glenore Grove State School this week.
Bruce and Denise Morcombe stopped into the school on Monday afternoon to not only talk about the tragic story behind the disappearance of their son Daniel, but to share vital information on child safety.
The duo spoke to children about the three R's, Recognise, React and Report as well as ways to speak to relatives and friends about issues and other strategies to ensure child safety.
Bruce Morcombe said it was important children were aware of how to look after themselves and how to avoid difficult situations.
"I think everyone can appreciate, even from Prep right through to Year 7, there are a lot of maturity levels there, and the three words Recognise, React and Report were relevant to them all," Bruce said.
"It's just interacting with the mums and dads but most of all the students."
Bruce said he was happy to see the Glenore Grove students taking the message of child protection on board.
"To have over 100 kids all focused on their safety, (is great)," he said.
"One young girl came up and she said to me 'I'm going to make a safety password tonight at the dinner table', so that's exactly what we are trying to do.
"We are trying to make them appreciate how bad things can happen anywhere and at any time and here is some good advice for them."
Glenore Grove State School acting principal Renee Heathwood said it was great to have both Bruce and Denise Morcombe visit the school and talk to the students.
"I think the students were excellent and especially on such a hot day the kids interacted beautifully," she said.
"I think it's a really important message, especially coming into the holidays as well."
