St George's raises awareness on Safer Internet Day 2018
St George's College joined hundreds of schools, communities, businesses and police services across the UK today (6 February) to mark Safer Internet Day 2018.
The aim of Safer Internet Day is to inspire people throughout the UK to ignite conversations and host events that help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
The slogan for Safer Internet Day is “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”.
With thousands of supporters delivering special activities and exercises to children across the UK, St George's College has also been busy educating the students and working these issues and debates into their lessons and also today's Collective Act of Prayer and Worship in Tutor Time.
One of our creative German language Teachers even managed to raise the issues and debates in her Fifth Year German class in the form of reading comprehension papers. The students read through the questions, which asked about the advantages and disadvantages of the internet (in German), and then had to put their ideas into answers for their IGCSE speaking questions.
