Safer Internet Day SID 2023

St Josephs' Safer Internet Week ( Feb 7th - Feb 10th)
Safer Internet Day SID 2023

February 8th 2022 is Safer Internet Day, an important day in our school calendar. Celebrated every

year across the EU and in other countries around the world, Safer Internet Day (SID) promotes the

safe and positive use of digital technology, especially among children and young people.

In Ireland, Safer Internet Day is promoted by PDST Technology in Education and Webwise, with the

theme “All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online”. Along with hundreds of other schools from around Ireland,

St. Joseph's will be celebrating Safer Internet Day. This provides us with the opportunity to

remind students about online safety messages and help them to learn to use the internet in a safe,and positive way. Resources from Webwise will be used during SPHE classes.


Please enter this year's Poster competition.

Parents can also get involved in the online safety conversation with children at home. To help you

with this, you may be interested in accessing the free advice and supports on the Webwise Parents

Hub – The hub includes practical advice on key online safety topics,

videos from parenting, technology, and education experts, along with Talking Points to start a

conversation with your child, and Explainer Guides to popular apps and platforms.
