I live close by and love seeing families out and about. The St Mary’s community is a unique and wonderful community.
I grew up in Keilor and am the youngest of 4 kids with 2 older brothers and an older sister. I have many nieces and nephews, 11 to be exact, ranging from 19 years old to 2. We love spending time together and even go on holidays often. I have 2 girls, Maddie is in Year 4 and Layla has just started Prep. They go to Queen of Peace Primary School.
I barrack for the mighty Bulldogs and love playing netball and meeting family and friends at the park for plays. I love traveling and discovering new places and can’t wait till we can travel overseas again.
The Prep - 2s talked about ‘Thinking about how you feel’ (even with cute actions so ask the kids to show you).
The 3/4s discussed making sure their passwords are ‘Long and Strong’ as well as how to take into account the perspectives of others when in the online world.
The 5/6s touched on Cyber Safety and in particular Cyber Bullying and the importance of being an ‘UPSTANDER’ if you see it happening.
All groups looked at the different online spaces - Personal, Private and Public and what each of these spaces meant in terms of your safety online.
We had good attendance at our Parent Webinar where Trent went through some great information with us about different trending apps and games and even the language children are using to communicate with each other in these apps and games. Trent also spoke about having digital agreements in homes and keeping the communication between the kids and parents as open as possible.
The Cyber Safety Project has a number of resources parents can access and tap into their expertise:
The Blog has information and ideas around parental controls for trending apps and games.
