LIfe Education: Cyber Safety

Last week Kereru students visited the Life Education truck to learn about staying safe online. 
Here are some of their comments;
It was really fun and I learnt ways to make sure that the person I talk to online is really who they say they are.
By Jesse
I learnt that you have to be 18 or 13 with parental guidance to use You Tube!
By Bella
I learnt that cyber bullying is now a crime and the police could get involved.
By Marco
If you get cyber bullied then you have to tell someone so they can help you.
