The Constable Kenny Koala program is committed to doing its part to limit the spread of COVID-19 in the community. This includes taking precautionary measures to assist in slowing the rate of transmission.

Therefore, all Constable Kenny school lessons and attendance at community events are postponed indefinitely.

No future booking requests will be confirmed at this time. We appreciate your understanding and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Constable Kenny Koala attends day care, preschools and primary schools in Canberra to present a range of safety topics to children aged three to 12-years-old.

There is no cost for Constable Kenny to visit your school.

We recommend that you make all your bookings for the year at the one time. Most schools usually book a session per term. No more than 40-45 children are permitted in a session (maximum of two classes).

Commencing Term 1, 2020 the program will have some exciting enhancements:

Classroom teachers will have access to an Australian Curriculum table that highlights links relating to each of the following topics, some of which are also new for 2020:

  • Stay OK online: K - Year 2 (via the ThinkUKnow program)
  • Stay OK every day: K - Year 4 (decision making and consequences)
  • Stay OK in the community: K - Year 6 (protective behaviours)
  • Stay OK on the road: K - Year 6 (road safety)
  • Stay OK for life: Years 5 - 6 (decision making and consequences)

Cyber safety presentations (via ThinkUKnow) for Years 3-6 are facilitated by ACT Policing’s Community Safety and Education Team. Requests for presentations can be made through thinkuknow.org.au.

Full Day Bookings

A full day is six to eight presentations for a range of classes within a school booked within a single day. Bookings will run in a row with the exception of breaks for recess and lunch.

However, he will still be available for major community events throughout the year. Requests for community events can be sent to act-community-requests@afp.gov.au.
