CWAC Event at Fairview

Wednesday 9th November was an exciting day for the Fairview Primary School community as it hosted its first Cuppa With A Cop event! This was a great opportunity for the school community to chat with our local Police Officers about issues of concern, whilst enjoying a scrumptious morning tea provided by the school. We were immensely happy with the number of police who took time out of their busy day to be there, including Inspector Philippa Burk, Sgt Andrea Richardson, Const Anthony Bailey, and three other officers. We appreciate the invitation by Principal Michelle Waldock to hold such an event within the school environment, and we look forward to holding more such events in the future!

Safety Tips for car users

Criminals will always be out and about looking for an easy target and to make a big score. Even though you may be rushed, especially in the lead up to the holiday season, stay alert to your surroundings.

It only takes a few seconds for a thief to jump into your car and drive away. When you leave your car, remove the key and lock the doors, even when filling up with petrol or going into the shop to pay for fuel.|

Items such as shopping bags, sport bags, house keys, cash, CDs, sunglasses, a brief case or even an old coat on the back seat are temptations for someone to smash and grab. They steal first and think about value later. But you could be left paying for the damage as your car insurance may not cover the cost of the damage, and you may have to pay your excess or even lose your no-claim bonus.

Private mail or registration papers with your address on them, along with keys left in the car, are an open invitation for thieves to access your house, so take these with you when you leave the car.

White Ribbon Day is today, 18th November – a day when Australians are asked to come together, host an event, or at least start a conversation about practical solutions to end men’s violence against women and children in our communities.
Let’s Be the Change and do what we can to contribute to a nation free of all forms of gendered violence, harassment, and disrespect. More information is available on this website:

White Ribbon Day is followed by International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on 25th November.
As in previous years, this year’s Day launches 16 days of activism to be concluded on the 10th of December — the day that commemorates International Human Rights Day. Several public events are being coordinated and iconic buildings and landmarks will be ‘oranged’ to recall the need for a violence-free future. To know more, visit the following site:
