On Tuesday 8th February, Safer Internet Day was on the timetable for all classes from Juniors to 6th class! Safer Internet Day (SID) is an EU wide initiative to promote a safer internet for all users, especially young people. Pupils enjoyed many activities such as Webwise Ireland Safer Internet Powerpoint Presentations, Kahoot quizzes, Poster design, Colouring and engaged in meaningful discussions about how we can become responsible digital citizens and how best to work together for a better Internet.
We place great emphasis on staying safe online in St. Joseph’s. The internet is an essential tool for both our teaching and learning everyday, where teachers and staff demonstrate good digital citizenship and online etiquette in line with our Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) which governs how we use technology in school.
We hope that these skills are carried with the children at home and in later life.

Remember our online safety motto: STOP, BLOCK, TELL
