Students Mark Safer Internet Day

Pictured marking Safer Internet Day are Tollbar Academy Year 11 students, Edward Parkinson and Amelia Powell, with Staff Member Stuart West.


Tollbar Academy students took part in Safer Internet Day where organisations work together to try and ensure a better internet for everyone.

Over the years, Safer Internet Day has become a landmark event in the online safety calendar. Starting as an initiative of the EU SafeBorders project in 2004 and taken up by the Insafe network as one of its earliest actions in 2005, Safer Internet Day has grown beyond its traditional geographic zone and is now celebrated in approximately 160 countries worldwide.

From cyberbullying to social networking, each year Safer Internet Day aims to raise awareness of emerging online issues and chooses a topic reflecting current concerns.

Stuart West, of Tollbar Academy, said: "The internet has opened up a whole world of opportunities for everyone but it also has its pitfalls. By marking Safer Internet Day we aim to ensure that our students are safe and that they always use the internet responsibly."
