Cyber Safety Evening

Wednesday 28th February 2018

6.00pm to 7.00pm

Cyber safety protection for your child at home: The College is proud to be introducing a new cybersafety package for our families.

Digital technology has opened up a world of possibilities for our children. At the same time, it has multiplied potential risks. Our goal is to protect every student from exposure to online threats – from inappropriate content to cyberbullying.

The College is proud to be introducing a new cybersafety package for our families which we will be providing free of charge in 2018. Family Zone is a complete, comprehensive cyber safety system that really works. With Family Zone, parents can opt to provide their children with the same protection they receive during school hours – at home and everywhere in between.

Ever since the college introduced laptops, our parents have expressed concern about managing their child’s access to the internet at home; Family Zone provides a solution to this problem. Chosen by over 300 premier schools, the Family Zone cyber safety ecosystem is a suite of unified products and services that provides an unrivalled cyber safety experience.

To complete the circle of safety for your child, however, we need your participation. By setting up a private Family Zone account, you can apply age-appropriate parental controls on every device your child has access to, in any location.

The college will stage a cyber safety evening in conjunction with Family Zone on Wednesday 28 February at 6pm in the Cosgrove Centre Gymnasium. All parents are encouraged to attend this event, when we will explain how to sign up and operate your account.

We have also teamed up with leading Cyber Expert Yasmin London from ySafe for the evening to present a parent workshop on current trends in social media. Informative and practical, the workshop will arm parents with constructive strategies for managing online behaviour. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Cyber safety and online predators
  • Social Media 101- Current trends on popular sites including Facebook,
  • Instagram, SnapChat
  • What kids are doing online that they don’t want their parents to know
  • Strategies for online behaviour management
  • Privacy settings
  • Sexting & the law
  • Pornography
  • Cyber bullying
  • Gaming
  • How to set boundaries around technology
  • Social media and mental health issues
