LGS Supporting Safer Internet

Matthew DunlopGeneral News

At the end of October, as part of our school’s ongoing e-safety programme, our senior prefects were delivering assemblies on building positive digital footprints, the impact of personal online reputations and the positive use of social media.

Delivering the message to stop, think then post and that social media can be used positively to raise awareness on important issues; communicating and staying up to date with friends and family. Networking with people who share the same interests around the world and helping to stay up to date with news and current events.

With the explosive growth of digital platforms the message is to remember that online reputations have never been so important and that we need to think about absolutely everything we post online, who can see it and what impression it leaves and how it can impact our lives now and in the future.
