Innovation and Technology

Issue 12


This term our school will have the pleasure of hosting Paul Litherland, renowned cyber-safety speaker and owner of Surf Online Safe. He will be presenting two workshops, one for parents and one for our Year Five and Six students. The parent workshop will be held on the 20 June at 6.30pm in the School Hall.

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 Church 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.
