Local students continue to learn from the Constable Care Foundation’s childhood and youth empowerment programs as they roll out across our community.

Constable Care visited Pearsall Primary School students in October.

The City of Wanneroo is proud to sponsor Constable Care and encourages more local schools to get involved.

Best-known for its widely-respected primary school puppet and theatre shows, over the past six years the Foundation has expanded into secondary schools, releasing exciting and innovative technologybased safety initiatives and programs.

Tackling issues from discrimination to bullying, cyber safety, crime prevention, and mental health, the Foundation delivers innovative and evidence based performances that help students come up with constructive strategies and solutions for addressing problems.

Foundation Youth Choices Program Manager Matt Stewart said local young people were benefitting from the educational programs.

“With the City of Wanneroo’s invaluable support, we recently conducted a Youth Choices Intensive Program at Butler College with Year 9 drama students,” he said.

“We had a great time developing scenarios about their chosen issue of ‘relationships’, exploring themes such as toxic masculinity, toxic friendships, family dysfunction and bullying.”

There are three programs available for local schools:

  • A Theatre-in-Education Program now called ‘Constable Care’ for primary schools and ‘Youth Choices’ for secondary schools
  • The Rapid Response Program
  • The Youth Choices Intensive Program for 12 to 17 year olds.
