Online Safety Education Sessions for Primary Students

Developed by our award-winning team, our student education sessions are dynamic and engaging, teaching students in an interactive way how they can make cyber-smart choices.

About the Sessions

Our Kindergarten - Year 6 sessions have been developed to educate students about the fundamental components of cyber safety. We offer developmentally targeted sessions which address key cyber risks, and build capacity in young people to navigate the digital platforms they encounter.

We emphasise the constructive relationship children can have with technology under our positive digital citizenship ethos and up-skill students in understanding the importance of online safety and ways to implement safe online practices.

I found the sessions really helpful and fun, and thought they related to me on all levels.

Online ‘Stranger Danger’ and Catfishing

We explore the many types of people on the internet and highlight the need to think critically about who you talk to, motivators behind online contact, and ways to verify someone is who they say they are (catfishing for older students only).

Protecting Personal Information

We discuss what information is safe and unsafe to post online, and the unexpected outcomes that can occur when we post something we shouldn't. We also cover the importance of good digital hygiene, and ways privacy and security settings can help keep people safe.

Cyberbullying & Online Etiquette

Focusing on SEL outcomes, we teach students how to recognise and anticipate negative online behaviours, and outline strategies for managing cyberbullying and seeking help.

Staying Safe Online

We cover additional strategies for staying safe online, including safe online gaming practices, geolocation tracking and age restrictions on social media.

Our foundation sessions cover a range of topics in a fun, innovative and impactful way

Designed to stand out from your typical cyber safety presentation, our sessions are visually engaging, dynamic, and interactive.

Our primary sessions not only deliver crucial lessons in online safety but empower the next generation to consider how they can take the lead in enhancing education and behaviour within their own digital communities.

Foundation Session Overview

The session focuses heavily on story-based learning activities for younger audiences. Introducing the concept of the internet and its interconnectedness, students learn about the challenges, risks, and benefits of using technology in their everyday lives. Delivered with the pro-technology ethos, students also learn the foundational concept of personal private information with an intentional focus on students' identification of safe, trusted adults and help seeking behaviours.

Key themes discussed in this session:
  • Safe people and places
  • Personal private information
  • Help-seeking behaviours

Incorporating the trending games and websites kids use with a focus on presenting cyber safety themes using a game-based delivery. This session is interactive, engaging, and full of practical strategies students can apply to real-world scenarios they experience. Covering the themes of personal private information and chatting safely online with a strong emphasis on the importance of help seeking behaviours, students cement the foundational knowledge required to enact online safety practices for positive outcomes.

Key themes discussed in this session:
  • Private information
  • Chatting safely
  • Seeking help

This session also encompasses and explains the many benefits of connecting and socialising online while effectively addressing the importance of being alert to risks. Utilising real-world stories and role play, we provide students with a safe forum to explore the impact of key themes such as cyber bullying, social exclusion, and the power of bystanders who choose to stand up and contribute to positive issue resolution. Using situationally analysis, we assess some of the main risks associated with games, social media, and the long-term impact on digital footprints.

Key themes discussed in this session:
  • Cyber bullying and bystander empowerment
  • Safety on social media and games
  • Digital footprints

Expert speakers and in-class learning have the greatest impact.
