Safer Internet Day

Today is Safer Internet Day where people across the globe reflect on a Safer Internet in a number of ways. Years 4, 5 and 6 students attended a live webinar presented by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) Cybersmart program. This session provided material to trigger students awareness of learning and networking online safely. This year’s theme is ‘Connecting generations’ and the slogan ‘Discover the digital world together… safely!’ Students, parents, grandparents, family and community are encouraged to discuss this vital concept. What messages can we share with each other? Below is a wall that year 7 built on what came to their minds when they hear the concept of Safer Internet Day.
