Internet Safety

Two policewomen came into school this week to give the Year 10’s a talk on Internet Safety. The talk lasted an hour and covered many topics on how and why it is so important to stay safe on the Internet. They covered different methods of hacking and the importance of having a secure password; cyber bullying and how to deal with it; and the risks of sexting. They also told real life examples of people that used the internet in the wrong way and paid the price for it.

 

There are many issues that today’s teenagers face online so it was essential that the Year 10’s were informed about the dangers of the internet.
