The keynote speaker for the evening, soon-to-retire MORETON District Officer Superintendent, Michael Brady talked about his time in the police force and the need for good youth crime prevention strategies.
“Can I say, together as a community, we now have an opportunity to work with our at-risk-youths to give them the skills and confidence that they can build a better life and walk away from another path that they don’t need to take,” Superintendent Brady said in the video.
A school principal, in a brief speech, outlined the importance of chaplaincy in schools.
Caboolture Special School Chaplain, Angus Gowan talked about the impact chaplaincy has on the special school.
“In my role I offer social, emotional, and spiritual support to young people at Caboolture Special School,” Angus Gowan explained.
“Not only do the young people need this, the parents and families need support too.”
This was followed by a lively auction, which formed part of the $75,000 raised at the event.
