Child Safety Officers
Make a Report
Henderson College has appointed the people listed below as the College’s Child Safety Officers (CSO). Each CSO is available to answer questions that you may have with respect to our Child Protection and Safety program.
The College’s CSO’s are your first point of contact for reporting child protection issues within the College. They receive special training that allows them to deal with child protection concerns both sensitively and effectively.
If you have any concern that a child may be experiencing any form of abuse, whether or not you have formed a belief on reasonable grounds that the abuse has occurred, you should immediately raise your concerns with one of our Child Safety Officers. An incident report must be completed.
These Child Safety Officers can be contacted:
- In Person
- Calling the College Administration 0350245192 and requesting to speak to a CSO;
- Emailing a CSO at MySafety@hendersoncollege.com.au
The welfare and best interests of the child are paramount. Whenever there are concerns that a child is in immediate danger the Police should be called 000.
The Child Safe Officers of the College are:
Mrs Venise Lang, (Student Wellbeing Coordinator and WH&S Officer)
Mrs Sandra Ferry, (Principal)
Mrs Deveena Obst, (Curriculum Officer)
