Keeping safe online

Yesterday we had the pleasure of a visit from SAPOL, officer Cassie, who was very informative and connected with our students about keeping themselves safe online.  Such topics discussed were:

Username and password – keeping this private and confidential

Online games – using single player mode

Social media apps – under 13 years is under age by the law

Friend requests – do not accept requests from people you do not know

Information sharing – keeping the content of photos private

Privacy settings – ensure your account’s setting is on private


Students viewed Cassie’s presentation, which was based on the resources of the following website:

Students and family are encouraged to check out the website and its many resources to help them keep safe online now and for years to come.
