While at the various schools, the Grammar School Young Leaders also spoke to pupils on this year’s theme: “Digital Citizenship, Responsibly Navigating Technology.”

“We explained to them that a digital citizen is one who knows what is right and wrong, exhibits intelligent technology behaviour, and makes good choices when using technology and highlighted the ways in which one can be a good digital citizen and also explained what it means to responsibly navigate technology.”

The main purpose of this activity was to educate the the Grade 5 pupils of: the dangers of not only the Internet but of technology; the different cyber crimes namely: cyber-bullying, cyber-stalking, hacking and plagiarism; the effects these different cyber crimes can have on an individual; the different ways in which they can prevent them.
