Free event in Warwickshire looking to raise awareness of online gaming safety and technology use.
Game Safe Warwickshire is a free event, open to students in Years 7 & 8 across Warwickshire, taking place on Thursday 26th April 2018.
At this free event, you will hear from Lorin LaFave, mother of Breck Bednar and founder of The Breck Foundation, a charity that educates the Digital Generation to keep safer online. She campaigns for a safer internet and helps train police, educators, health practitioners, safeguarding leads, parents and pupils to ensure that young people are empowered to make safer choices for themselves online.
This event will help you find out more about what you can do to help protect yourself or others from potential harms of online gaming. The event will also look to talk about safeguarding and how to keep young people safe.
We are holding two sessions in the day for students in Years 7 & 8 across Warwickshire Schools; as well as Designated Safeguarding Leads and other teachers. These sessions will run from 10:30am – 12:00 and 13:00 – 14:00. You only need to book onto one session.
There is also an evening session which parents (along with their children), and other professionals are able to sign up to. This will run from 18:00 – 19:30. Please note, some of the topics covered in this event may be unsuitable for very young children.
Places are limited, so book your place, and send any queries, to firstname.lastname@example.org
