Internet Safety Week at Corpus Christi GNS 7th February- 10th February
Tuesday, February 7th is Safer Internet Day. This day is celebrated by schools internationally. The slogan for this day is ‘Together for a better Internet’.
All classes will celebrate Safer Internet Day and Internet Safety Week by engaging our pupils in lessons from Webwise.ie. and The FUSE Anti-Bullying Programme. These lessons teach responsible internet use and teach strategies on how to respond to negative experiences online. This is an important part of our Acceptable Use Policy and our Child Protection Risk Assessment and policy.
Webwise is funded by the Department of Education and is responsible for the coordination of Safer Internet Day (SID) in Ireland, and they ask that all pupils, teachers and parents to support the #SID2023 campaign and help to encourage people to be safe internet users.
Parents have an important role to play when it comes to online safety, and Safer Internet Day is a great time for parents to have a chat with their child about internet safety. The webwise.ie/parent’s hub is a great resource for parents, with practical, jargon free advice on a range of topics including screen time, image-sharing and social media.
We are looking forward to celebrating this important week at Corpus Christi.
From Monday 23rd January to Friday 27th January, we will celebrate Catholic Schools Week at Corpus Christi Girls National School. The theme for this year is Walking together in faith and love. Please see below what we will focus on each day:
Walking together in faith
Walking together in love
