Online Guardians presentation to our Stage 3 students was brilliant. It was well-structured and engaged the students for the whole 45 minutes showing that it was age appropriate and relevant. It successfully opened their eyes up to the real risks that exist in our society. The Cyber talk was incredibly useful to not only our students but it helped us identify just how many of them are using phones or social media which will help us in the future deal with these issues. The student question time was great and gave the students the chance to ask about things concerning them.
Feedback from both students and teachers was extremely positive. The students were engaged and interested. The way the messages were delivered were great. Many many students commented on how excellent and thought-provoking this talk was. We went back to our classrooms and continued to talk about the seriousness and impact on young people, the risk and repercussions.
The Online Guardians team visited our school today to discuss issues around online Safety with our Year 5 and 6 students. The information provided was clear and concise and outlined issues around legality (the age at which students are permitted to be on various social media apps), privacy settings, how to block people, how to report abuse and how to limit the amount of personal information that is placed on apps. The students particularly enjoyed this session. The teachers and students would like to thank the team personally for the informative session today.
