Supporting your child's safety online - Minecraft (Issue 11 2017)

Written on the 3 August 2017


Following a visit in May from Sonya Ryan of the Carly Ryan Foundation, who spoke to our Year 10 students and parents about the practical steps they can take to protect their privacy and safety online, I have included fact sheets in each newsletter. Our last newsletter included a fact sheet on YouTube. This is the final fact sheet in the series.

These fact sheets were developed by the Australian Federal Police and each are relevant to a number of popular apps and social media platforms that young people are using.

Sonya's sessions were very powerful as they explored her personal journey of losing her daughter, Carly, to an online predator and then the work she has done since to educate and protect young people from suffering a similar fate. Sonya explained the risks of some the most popular apps and social media platforms and provided step by step guides for how parents can support their children (and themselves) to ensure that they have safe privacy and security settings.
