Netsafe Parent Information Session

By Urs Cunningham | Posted: Thursday May 25, 2023

Netsafe will be holding an information session for parents and whānau of Amesbury ākonga midway through term 3. The session will focus on supporting adults to keep our tamariki safe online. We were originally due to hold this session in June, but Netsafe needed to change the date due to staffing issues.

Netsafe is a non profit online safety charity. They work with people across Aotearoa New Zealand by providing tools, support and advice for managing online challenges. 

Our tamariki grow up surrounded by digital devices. As they spend more time online, it is important that the adults around them know how to actively teach them to have a safe online experience. 

On Tuesday 15th August Netsafe will run an online safety session for all kaiako (teachers) after school within our weekly staff meeting. They will then hold a parent and whānau online safety session from 5-6pm in the school hall. Both sessions will be provided free of charge. Here is the Netsafe flyer about this event. 

The whānau session will cover:

  • Quick starter tips for parents, whānau and young people
  • Information to enhance your digital parenting knowledge
  • Details about the online risks and challenges your child may face
  • Advice about how you can help your child if something goes wrong online  

If you are planning on attending, please help us with our preparation for the session by completing this quick rsvp form. If you registered for the original session in June, please complete this form again, to confirm your attendance on the new date. Thanks so much. 

This will be a useful and timely session for our community, and we hope to see many of you there. 

Ngā mihi,
