Primary students offer tips for staying safe online


Students in Years 5 and 6 have been learning about esafety to empower them to have safe online experiences.

We wanted to share their top tips for staying safe online:
• Don’t click on things that look unsafe
• Stay on reputable websites
• Stop and think before you click or post
• Friend only people who you can trust
• Don’t share any details that you wouldn’t share in real life, like bank details, your address, passwords and what school you may go to
• Don’t play on unsafe games
• Always check with mum, dad, or an adult when you aren’t sure of something online
• Say ‘no’ if you feel unsafe or ignore and block players on games
• Always read questions – don’t just answer straight away.
