Safe Use of the Inter­net:  Fr Jeff atten­ded an online present­a­tion by the office of the eSafety Com­mis­sion­er, an office of the Com­mon­wealth Gov­ern­ment.  The web­site for the eSafety Com­mis­sion­er has many tips for par­ents, schools and oth­er organ­isa­tions about how to stay safe while using the inter­net.

These were some tips for young people:

  • Stay con­nec­ted with your friends and fam­ily as part of a daily routine. If things are both­er­ing you online or off­line, speak openly about it.
  • Reach out to your exten­ded fam­ily such as cous­ins, aunties or uncles if you are hav­ing a hard time at home with your imme­di­ate fam­ily.
  • Let your teach­ers or school coun­sel­lor know if you need extra sup­port.
  • If you are feel­ing pres­sures from social media, it’s OK to take a break or switch-off.
  • If you think you are being cyber­bul­lied or you feel uncom­fort­able or unsafe about someone who has con­tac­ted you online, read up on eSafety’s advice about how to get sup­port.
  • If neces­sary call one of the num­bers below.
