Cyber Safety Week


Next week (11th – 15th of June) is Cyber Safety Week. This is a good chance to revise all of the Cyber Safety tips that you children learnt during Rotation in Term One. During Rotation with Miss Hunichen we focussed on Cyber Bullying and how to be safe when online.

In order to do this we used a series of short videos called Hector’s World. We watched all 5 videos from the ‘Keeping Your Personal Information Safe’ section.

You might like to view these videos again with your child and discuss the story lines with them.

 The following video also reinforces some of the things the children learnt while watching Hectors World.

Layers Week

This week at New Gisborne Primary School it is Layers Week.

We have been running Layers Week since 2005 in a bid to encourage children to rug up and save energy.

On Monday the children rugged up in all their layers. It was The children were asked to wear extra layers of clothing to help us launch Layers Week. Some children wore a couple of hats, a jacket, several scarves, and even an extra pair of pants…it was a fun event and some of our students were almost unrecognisable due to their many layers.
