Southend United Community & Educational Trust are proud to have supported Safer Internet Day once again…
On Tuesday 6th February 2018, millions across the UK and around the world participated in Safer Internet Day and Southend United pledged its support along with hundreds of schools and organisations across the UK.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the day was an opportunity to talk to family and friends about the responsible, respectful, critical and creative use of technology, and to remember that ‘a better internet starts with you’.
On Tuesday afternoon our Education Tutors helped to make students aware of how to stay safe online through a presentation and activities.
Education Tutor Stuart Avis had this to say about the lesson: “It is very important in this day and age to make young people aware of some of the dangers online and how a comment or a post can be perceived. Many young people now take the internet for granted and see it as a way of life and sometimes this can be a negative, so days like this really help.”
The support didn’t stop there as on Wednesday SUFC Community held a Premier League Kicks Girls Tournament at KingEdmundSchool to help promote the message.
The girls had the chance to compete for some silverware as well as watching a presentation about internet safety.
