Fourth Year students Brigid O’Sullivan, Katie Harte, Christina McCarthy, Siadbh Redmond and Dermot Hegarty gave three informative presentations on internet safety in Ms Orla O'Sullivan’s SPHE and Religion classes. Anti-Bullying is already an integral part of the curriculum for these classes.
These presentations are part of a leadership programme with Foróige where participants will become McAfee Internet Safety Ambassadors and will be qualified as Foróige leaders. These students are a credit to our school as they trained extensively in this area by attending a workshop with a representative from McAfee. It is based on the three principles of cyber safety, cyber security and cyber ethics.
First and Second Year students learned a great deal about the topic of internet safety including cyber security hot spots, how to safely block pop ups, and turn off geotagging. They also learned about how to act ethically online and how to create more secure passwords.
All the students participated well and were very vocal in conveying their experiences. The feedback was very positive, so much so that the students are now going to be giving their presentation to other classes in the school. Well done to everyone on continuing the promotion of a bullying free and cyber bullying free school.
