Silver Wolf - Personal Safety: Explain the dangers of talking to strangers

Most people are good and kind but there are some strangers who like to hurt children.

A stranger is a person, man or woman, who you or your parents do not know. They could be tall or short, thin or fat, old or young. Not all strangers will hurt you, but some may.


Never talk to strangers. If they ask you the way, tell them politely but NEVER go with them to show them the way.

Never get into a stranger's car. If you see other children getting into a strange car, remember the type, colour, and registration number and tell an adult immediately.

If a stranger wants to collect you from school, tell them to speak to your teacher.

If a stranger offers you sweets or treats say NO and tell an adult immediately.
