Safer Internet Day (1)

On Tuesday, 9 February Safer Internet Day was held at Junior Years. Our Junior Years students have participated in online educational sessions, discussed ‘fake versus real’ in our online safety lessons, and enjoyed stories and songs which encourage us all to be kind online. Parents can access valuable resources on the eSafety Commissioner’s website.  Have a discussion with your family about how we can make the internet a safer place for everyone.  If you have not yet done so please discuss with your daughter and complete the Responsible Use of Devices form.

Here are some sad statistics for 2020/2021:

  • Cyberbullying up 66% for students and 48% for adults, mostly social exclusion
  • Image-based abuse has increased by 110% (600% during COVID-19)
  • Child abuse material up 118% 

Remember you can access our Online Safety policies and helpful links for your family on the Glennie Portal.  Just look for the Cyber Education and Child Protection button.
