Years 7 and 8 E-Safety Assembly

posted 31 Mar 2015, 01:31 by Shirley Wheeler

On Thursday last week, Mrs Jones arranged a special assembly for Years 7 and 8; a visit from the band "In Hindsight" who performed a small selection of their songs, answered questions from the audience and delivered a very important message about cyber-bullying and how to use the internet safely.  In Hindsight told the students about the effects of cyber-bullying, some of the reasons why cyber-bullying happens and gave important advice on what you can do if it ever happens to you.  The band also spoke about social media websites and what you definitely should not do e.g. never type your address, phone number or email address onto the internet as then people will be able to find you incredibly easily and this places you in danger. Finally, they gave advice on the importance of enhancing your privacy settings on any social media websites that you may already be using.  The students thoroughly enjoyed the music and listened avidly to the band's presentation.
