Decorate Your Gate

If you walk past a Diocese Catholic school or St Nicholas Early Education Centre or OOSH Service from 3-9 September, you may notice something different!

After an overwhelming response last year, the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle is again recognising National Child Protection Week 2023 through the ‘Decorate Your Gate’ initiative.

This initiative aims to put our commitment to upholding the dignity and rights of children front and centre – literally – by encouraging our Catholic schools and St Nicholas Early Education Centres and OOSH Services to decorate their gate, fence, or alternative space in line with the theme, ‘Where we start matters’.

Last year students and children came up with diverse and creative ways to showcase the theme so keep an eye out for this year’s efforts!

National Child Protection Week is coordinated by the National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN)
