Parent Presentation: Cyber-Safety

In Term Two, our school will have the pleasure of hosting Paul Litherland for a second time. Paul is a renowned cyber-safety speaker and owner of Surf Online Safe. He will be presenting one parent session, to be held on the 2nd of May at 6.30pm in the Library (Week One, Term Two). Last year parents thoroughly enjoyed this session and acknowledged the great wealth of expertise shared with them as parents.

Paul will share his experiences as a WA Police Officer in the Technology Crime Investigation Unit and speak about the need for students and parents to remember the impact of their digital footprint, maintain levels of privacy when using apps and apply methods to remain safe in an online environment.

Paul’s parent presentations will cover a wide range of topics and will last between 1 to 1.5hours depending on questions. Subjects covered may include:

  • Cyber Bullying – Legislation surrounding this and how it is affecting our children.
  • Digital Citizenship – Where our children are going online, the Apps they are using and the information they are sharing.
  • Online Footprint – How easy it is to find children online and what they can do to minimise their risk.
  • Social Networking & Networking in general – How the systems work and how to overcome their reach.
  • Online Gaming and Website Use – Risks and uses.
  • Tips & Tricks – How to keep an eye on your children through software and hardware. Easy instructions on what we can do to keep them safe.

Paul is very much in demand and has been presenting to children and parents at a number of schools over the years. Coincidently, Paul’s family are parishioners at the Infant Jesus Parish and Paul’s grandfather helped to build the original Church and school!

Please see the two attachments which include a bio for Paul and further information on Surf Online Safe.

Infant Jesus School JBHiFi Portal

Infant Jesus School requires students in Year Three – Six to bring an iPad to school.

As discussed at the parent night in 2018, from 2019, the iPad that the school is asking students to bring is a 128GB, WIFI, 6th Generation – this model is recommended so the device will last through till Year Six and support the required software, apps and updates.

Parents are free to source an iPad and case from whichever provider they choose; however, the school has been able to set up an education portal through JB HiFi and a result, can offer parents discounted prices on items.

Please note, these prices will be through an online portal – not directly from a store. Optional discounted accessories will also be available through the portal. This includes the insurances which are available to purchase at parent discretion.
