Whatever you decide to do, please let Netsafe know. We are here to help.
Set up a online safety event for Parents
You can put on an event to show off your online skills to the parents of children that attend your school. This is a good chance to highlight the interesting things you’re doing with ICT at school – as well as helping them learn about the dangers online.
Set up an online safety programme for the younger kids
Help the younger children at your school learn about online safety by setting up an event or presentation. There are lots of free video resources you can use to support your event.
Older children can set up a digital peer support programme and support the younger children as they start using the school’s technology.
These ideas are just starters. Nobody knows what it is like to be young and online more than you and you can use that experience to start your own project. You might be amazed what you can achieve.
