Safer Internet Day ‘Be the Change: Unite for a better internet’:
This week has been Safer Internet Week in school and our focus has been "The Power of Image". The assembly, led by Mr Strachan, discussed taking and sharing photographs online. We agreed that once you post something online, it is hard to get it back. We also talked about that, from seemingly innocent photographs, someone you did not know could find out personal information about you. For example, an image of a birthday party can reveal someone's age! On Tuesday, Years Four, Five and Six were visited by the Life Education team and their work helped the children decide what they would do if someone sent them a nasty message and picture about another person. After meeting with the children, Life Education also ran a workshop for parents about popular technology that children are using. It calls upon all of us to join together in safeguarding children when online. Did you know that you need to be 13 years old to have a Facebook or Instagram account? We know that many of our children have access to such programs – do you, as parents, know what they are posting?
