Today, we celebrated Safe and Happy Day. During Circle Time, which we do in our cross age groups, we engaged in reflections that tuned us in to our own and other's feelings. We also brought a gold coin for the "Save the Children's Fund," an organisation that is committed to creating a world where every child has a safe and happy childhood.


  1. Thank you for your reflections about being safe and happy. Interesting that it was the feelings of joy and success that made you happy and not material things.
    We are so lucky to live in Australia as we do not have to worry about war and conflict on our streets. At the moment I am sure the children in New South Wales, in spite of many losing all their possessions are feeling that the fire fighters and emergency services will make sure they are safe.
    We have many people to support us in this country. What would it be like to have no-one to turn to for help or comfort?

  2. Such insightful reflections about what contributes to your feelings of safety and happiness. I agree with Mrs Clark, that it is quite significant that situations and people make you happy, not 'stuff'.
    Thanks for sharing Seniors!

  3. It is good that we feel safe and happy most of the time here in Australia. Imagine what it would be like to never have that feeling if you were born in a country ravaged by war or if your skin colour or religion made you feel unsafe in your world. We should always be grateful to feel "safe and happy".
