We had the great privilege of having Karl Hopwood with us for the day on Wednesday 5 February. As an expert in the field of online safety, he brought fresh insights, elicited thought provoking conversations and gave pupils, staff and parents alike new tools to successfully navigate life in a digital world. Many of our pupils remarked that they will now be much more careful about how they use information that they see online, and are much more aware of the potential pitfalls of social platforms. At the end of the day, Karl noted that many of our pupils were ‘wonderfully articulate and highly perceptive’ in their approach to the digital world.
The parent session was once again wholeheartedly embraced by those who attended, many of whom commented on its value in their role as a parent, in a quickly shifting digital landscape.
