This is such an important topic for all parents and carers of young people whose lives are today dominated by an online presence. This year’s slogan is:

“Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you.”

It is vitally important that all our pupils and staff are fully aware of the dangers that can arise when using the internet. As a school we will be holding an assembly tomorrow so all the children are aware of the day and what it stands for.

They visited New York in North America, Peru in South America, Germany in Europe, Japan in Asia where they stopped for a delicious lunch, The Congo in Africa, New Zealand in Australia and finally finishing in Antarctica.
