It’s Fun, It’s Safe and it Works
Our programs are trialled and tested, we have worked in conjunction with industry experts within both the child protection and education sectors to deliver messages regarding child protection in a non - confrontational manner that children understand.
A few positive testimonials from schools who have seen the show are available below.
“Fabulous to see a roleplay about real issues. Issues that are not subject to class or race. Unfortunately sexual abuse is an issue that as teachers and/or parents we have a responsibility to give these beautiful little children in our lives, the tools to be able to cope. If ever in a situation where they don’t feel safe, maybe they will remember what they learnt and be able to use it. Thank you for empowering the children in my class. This is a wonderful program”.
Geelong Lutheran College, VIC
“Fantastic! Clear messages. The children were able to participate and learn through songs, actions and words. The children responded very positively to the experience”.
Christ the King Primary School, VIC
“What a highly engaging show for our P-2’s. All the children participated enthusiastically singing songs, learning actions and practising phrases to help keep them safe. Ditto was certainly a highlight of the show which the children engaged with immediately. A wonderful, innovative program which is imperative for all of our children, well done!”
Portarlington Primary School, VIC
"Elanora State School have invited the Bravehearts Ditto Show to our school for the past 7 years. During that time we have seen the students at our school grow to become familiar with Ditto and his lessons on how to recognise feelings, private parts, and protective behaviours. The prep, Year 1 and Year 2 students have the Bravehearts Ditto Show as part of their school program. Ditto’s message is one that requires reviewing and revisiting at various times throughout the school year. The Bravehearts Ditto Show manages to convey complex and sensitive topics in a fun and age appropriate manner. Students are provided with a Ditto Show bag, that they can interact with together their teachers and parent/carer after the show. I recommend the Bravehearts Ditto Show as an important element in the Prep, Year 1 and 2 program"
Elanora State Primary School, QLD
"I just came from the Ditto show at my daughter's preschool and just wanted to say a quick thanks to you all for the amazing work you do. This is the second year I have been along to the show at Bunyip. I looked around at all the precious little kids in that room taking in the messages from the show and singing along to the songs and felt so grateful that your organisation is out there doing something real and practical about making childhood a safe and wonderful time for all Australian kids. You should be tremendously proud of the work you do."
"A great program for the children, age appropriate and developmentally beneficial."

"If you want to cover units about children's safety in an exciting, motivating and empowering way, get Bravehearts to your school. We believe so strongly in this program that the school pays for all age appropriate students to attend."
"It is most appropriate for children in Prep to Grade 3. The children in our school definitely feel more comfortable with knowing how to deal with situations."
