We look out for each other’s physical and emotional well-being, and help to protect each other from harm.
Duty of Care
Taking risks is part of life and being together, but unnecessary risk is not part of community life. Jabiru community life includes taking responsibility for the lives and safety of each other. Particularly where children are involved, community includes ensuring that responsible people exercise a duty of care for the safety of those children.
But safety from harm is everyone’s business in a community, and we encourage each child to be aware of their responsibilities for their own safety and that of others around them.
This Touchstone also includes paying careful attention to the ways we handle and serve food, the ways we come into physical contact with children, the language we use, or the elements of their culture that we value.
