Safer Internet Day Coming Up!

Start the chat about online safety and help make every day a Safer Internet Day!

On Tuesday, 11 February 2020 Bethany College will be participating in Safer Internet Day 2020. The theme this year is `together for a better internet’ and Australia’s eSafety Commissioner is encouraging parents to mark the day by starting family conversations about online safety.

Instilling positive online safety behaviour has never been more important as today’s generation of children grow up in an online world. While there are many benefits to being online, the availability of online games, social networking sites, smartphones and internet-connected tablets can sometimes leave children and young people vulnerable to harmful content and behaviours.

You can download a variety of Safer Internet Day resources at esafety.gov.au/sid and use them to start the conversation about online safety with your family or daughter. Or you can simply check out eSafety’s great range of advice and resources. Why not get started by visiting the parents and carers pages and reading the practical tips for kicking off an online safety conversation?
