CYBER SAFETY AWARENESS
A very successful cyber safety awareness seminar for parents and children took place recently in the school. During the day, the children from 1st to 6th Classes had their own seminar on the dangers posed by many aspects of the internet – in particular by social media sites. In the evening many parents came to the school hall for the Parent Seminar. Many parents were shocked at just how dangerous it is to allow a child to use the internet without the supervision of their parents. The internet is a wonderful resource but children need to be protected from the dangers it poses to their safety. The key message? Talk to your children about the internet and monitor their use of apps and social media sites.
STAY SAFE PROGRAMME
The ‘Stay Safe Programme‘ is a national programme aimed at giving children the skills they need to keep themselves safe from dangerous situations and how to get help if they find themselves in a situation that makes them feel uncomfortable. The programme has been in use for many years and has recently been modernised. There will be an information evening for PARENTS on Wednesday 21st February to highlight some of the new features of the Stay Safe Programme. At least one parent from each family is encouraged to attend. Shortly after that evening, teachers will be implementing the Stay Safe Programme in class. The children will bring home worksheets and will talk about what they have learned in school. Again the key message is to talk to your children – and to listen when they talk to you.
