Online Safety & Covid-19

Stay safe online, stay home, wash your hands, and remain vigilant. Many of us are online more often now, receiving news on different online platforms, engaging in working from home methods, surfing entertainment platforms and more. We urge you to be safe when interacting online. Be cautious about engaging with individuals that you may not know offline. Make sure to double check news about the virus with notable resources such as the World Health Organisation. And report online abuse because a safer online journey begins with you.


Child Abuse Online

In the rapidly evolving technological world we live in today and the increasing mobile connectivity around the country, children are exposed to more than what most adults were at their age. In addition, the covid-19 pandemic gives a rise to children accessing online platforms for education, entertainment and much more. We encourage parents to take heed of parental safety tips that can help protect our children online. Educators are also urged to familiarise themselves with their duties as child carers in continuing to shape the minds of our future. 

Social Media Tips

Use strong password or codes and don’t share them with anyone
