Students at local schools were among the first in WA to experience Constable Care’s new show “Trending” this week.

Trending is an anti-bullying show for upper primary students, dealing with cyber bullying and internet safety, including subjects such as posting photos online without the subject’s permission.

Students at Kearnan College, Manjimup Primary School, Pemberton District High School, Bridgetown Primary School and Balingup Primary School attended sessions at their schools on Wednesday and Thursday.

Some of the topics covered by Constable Care at the shows include road safety, bullying, internet safety and protection from child abuse.

Lower primary students experienced a puppet show performance, while older students attended an interactive workshop, giving them the chance to demonstrate the skills they had learnt as part of the show as well as their ideas about the topics discussed.

Year 4 student Grace Hanratty from Kearnan College said the show was funny and educational at the same time.

Bridgetown Primary School student Pia Brandrett said the show was a good reminder to think before posting online and to stick to just being in contact with family and close friends on social media.
