Keep kids safe online

DO YOU know who your kids are talking to on the internet?

The answer is probably no and it may be the case that your kids don’t know who they are talking to either.

Children are immersed in technology at school and home and use the internet for education, entertainment and socialising. But it isn’t always safe.

Parents and children can learn about the risks of internet use and ways to stay safe online at free workshops being held at Tinana State School and Aldridge State High School early next month. Presenter Olivia Rich from the Australian Communications and Media Authority will discuss issues such as cyber-bullying, illegal content, grooming, predatory behaviour and identity theft.

Parents of all Maryborough school students are invited to the session at Tinana State School on Tuesday, March 2, from 6.30pm.

Parents with students at Maryborough High and Aldridge High are invited to the session at Aldridge High’s theatrette on Monday, March 1, at 7pm.
