Internet Safety and general wellbeing

internet safety

Miss Chantale has been busy fulfilling her role as Pastoral Coordinator, going into the MYP classrooms recently to discuss such topics as internet safety. The topic of internet safety has also already been address in the parent welcome evening and in the first two school assemblies, so it is clearly an important topic to the school. 

On Thursday August 30th, Miss Chantale visited grade 6 and grade 7:
 
Grade 6 -  An internet safety lesson focusing on "consequences" of not keeping your personal information private online and how to report abuse.  We had a discussion on being more aware of who we are accepting online friendship from (a friend of a friend does not mean they are a friend).  We also discussed "Who can I talk to". (Posters are displayed around the school).
 
Grade 7 - A short lesson on "Who can I talk to".  (Posters are displayed around the school).  The children were encouraged to brainstorm any issues they would like to have a lesson/discussion about.
 
On Friday August 31st Miss Chantale visited grade 8 and grade 9:
 
Grade 8 -   An internet safety lesson focusing on "consequences" of not keeping your personal information private online and how to report abuse.  We had a discussion on being more aware of who we are accepting online friendship from (a friend of a friend does not mean they are a friend).  We also discussed "Who can I talk to".  (Posters are displayed around the school).
 
Grade 9 - A lesson on healthy/unhealthy relationships focusing on "exploitation".  In this lesson we discussed the difference between an unhealthy relationship and a healthy one which included peer pressures.  We also discussed "Who can I talk to".  (Posters are displayed around the school).
 
Subject teachers continue to bring this topic into focus in their classrooms. 
 
We hope parents are doing the same at home.
