A Day in the Life of an E-safety Champion
As our pioneering, student-led E-safety programme “Connected” is taking Bristol schools and their communities by storm, we hear from our fabulous E-safety Champions from Bedminster Down Secondary about what it takes to be an E-safety Champion.
Selected students from Bedminster Down Secondary school have been working with Unique Voice to become trained E-safety Champions, and are now ready to tour to local primary schools alongside our professional actors in “Connected”.
The first part of their training involved exploring the internet, it’s dangers and ways to keep safe. Issues included gaming, online security and social media . The second part was all about public speaking skills and how to communicate and engage younger children, which they’ll be drawing on in the post-show workshops they’ll be leading for primary students.
Many of the Champions will be proud to be returning to their very own primary schools, including Cheddar Grove, Victoria Park, Headley Park, Greenfield, Parson Street and St Peters.
After all of their hard training and rehearsing, it’s time for the Primary School performances! Let’s here from some of our Champions to see how they’re feeling…
And what an amazing job they did! We have been blown away by the wonderful work of our E-safety Champions who have been so inspirational in encouraging the next generation to be E-safe!
But don’t just take our word for it – let’s hear from one of the teachers at Cheddar Grove who watched the show and took part in the “Connected” workshops…
Phew! It’s time to sit down in the staff room and reflect on how the day went with a nice cup of tea…
But our E-safety Champions’ work doesn’t finish there! When the Primary School tour finishes, our Champions will go straight into rehearsals for Safer Internet Day 2014…
The South Bristol “Connected” programme will culminate at Bedminster Down Secondary School on National Safer Internet Day 2014. Our E-safety Champions will be joined by local performers and businesses in a unmissable celebration of promoting E-safety to students, staff, parents and the wider community.
