Yr 7 & Yr 8 Receive OSA Certificate of Online Safety

Students with their OSA certificates webThe importance of online safety cannot be under estimated and we are taking steps to ensure our students are well equipped to understand and embrace modern technology.

The OSA Certificate of Online Safety provides students with an opportunity to develop and demonstrate knowledge of how to stay safe while using modern digital devices.

Our digital devices have become incredibly important in our day-to-day lives and bring great opportunities and pleasure. However, the risks posed by these technologies to the health and safety of young people today are varied and very real.

Year 7 & 8 Students have had to think carefully about how their use of technology might make them vulnerable to a range of problems, both now and in the future. Our students have had to reflect on how you use technology, what they might need to do differently, and what to do if they find themselves in a difficult situation.

All our Yr 7 and 8 students are in the process of working through the tests for all topics and once completed they will receive an OSA Certificate of Online Safety.
