Paul Litherland Cyber-Safety Workshops

On Thursday 1 March our school had the pleasure of hosting Paul Litherland, renowned cyber-safety speaker and owner of Surf Online Safe.

Paul presented to the Year 5 and 6 students, along with around 90 parents in the evening, sharing his experiences as a WA Police Officer in the Technology Crime Investigation Unit. Paul spoke about the need for students and parents to remember the impact of their digital footprint, maintain levels of privacy when using apps and apply methods to remain safe in an online environment.

Cyber-safety is an ever expanding area of concern for both parents and teachers alike. Students and parents reported that his presentation was alarming but also entertaining and relatable. We look forward to welcoming Paul back in the future and thank the parents who took this important opportunity to attend the information evening.
