By celebrating the positive power of the internet, the 2018 Safer Internet Day theme of “Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you” encouraged everyone to join the global movement, to participate, to make the most of the internet’s potential to bring people together. At Greensteds International School, the Technology faculty in collaboration with the ICDL coordination team spearheaded the marking of this noble day by involving staff and students in an activity.
This involved an introductory speech and PowerPoint presentation by the Director of ICT and Coordinator of Prep School ICT on Safer Internet Day. This was followed by a key note speech by the Head of Technology faculty, Mr. Omotto on issues surrounding promoting respect using online technology. Students also made various presentations, including Prince (Year 12) who showcased his web design prowess.
Not to forget Hawi, Epiphany, Jacqueline, Natalya and Lucy who made outstanding presentations. The students then went for the first lesson in their usual classrooms where they participated in three different Safer Internet Day activities. This was coordinated by various subject teachers. The day was very successful, with presentations from the Sustainability Faculty giving prominence to internet security and a captivating recital in Spanish.
