Pastoral Care programme in action: Safer Internet Day

On Tuesday 5 February we actively acknowledged Safer Internet Day – a global event that is held annually. The theme ‘together for a better internet’ encourages individuals to create a better internet by developing four, critical skills. We call these skills the 4Rs: Respect, Responsibility, Reasoning and Resilience.

Tuesday was perfect timing to launch our whole College pastoral care programme. During the timetabled pastoral care period, all classes and tutor groups across the College participated in a variety of activities promoting how to stay safe on the internet. Our Junior and Middle School students participated in activities performing role plays and having discussions about identifying and reporting cyberbullying, dealing with unwanted contact and potential online risks. Senior School students were involved creating messages and posting them on pledge boards, making selfie masks and web banners.
