Together for a Better Life Online

During the month of April, the Office of the Head of College Network within St Benedict College organised a series of activities around the theme Together for a Better Life Online. These activities were organised in collaboration with the Primary Digital Literacy Support Team, PSCD educators, the Malta Police CyberCrime Unit, BeSmartOnline and the Commissioner for Children. In the primary schools, PSCD educators delivered lessons in Year 4, 5 and 6 classes and then students were encouraged to create digital posters about what they learned in order to raise awareness within their school community. The Hellen Keller Resources Centre organised interactive Internet Safety sessions for their students. Parents of primary-age students were invited to an information session organised by the primary digital literacy team and BeSmartOnline while Middle and Secondary school parents were invited to attend an information session delivered by the Malta Police Cybercrime Unit. Middle and Secondary school students created posters during their art lessons to raise awareness about the importance of responsible digital citizenship.
