22 Nov

On Tuesday of next week November 26th we are very pleased to host Internet Safety workshops here in school:
1st – 6th Class pupils during the school day, our staff after school and a talk on Cyber Bullying and Internet Safety for Parents at 7.30pm.

Talk for Parents Overview

In today’s technology-rich environment most of us feel woefully inadequate when it comes to knowing what our children are really experiencing when they use the internet. This is normal and to be expected. However, as parents we have a fundamental duty of care for our children, and unfortunately that means getting a grasp of the things that our children are experiencing online.

Jeremy Pagden, the Managing Director of Schools Websites, will deliver the talk. Jeremy has been travelling all over the country delivering Internet Safety talks to both Parents and children alike. The topics covered during the session are as follows:

· Cyber bullying

· Social Media & The Law

· Gaming and Internet Addiction

· Fortnite & Gamification

· Social Media Privacy, Issues & Challenges

· The motivation behind large Social Media Companies

· Types of Internet Theft

· Browser History

· Safe use of apps

· Safe Searching on You Tube

· Safety settings on your home Wifi

· Useful Resources

We cannot stress the importance of this presentation and very much look forward to seeing you all on the night.
