Tech-savvy primary school kids spreading the word about online safety

Rugby Editorial 5th Jan, 2019   0

TECH-savvy pupils at Eastlands Primary School have been shown how to have a safe, secure future on the internet by a local technology firm.

Inspire Technology has become the sponsor of the school’s Digital Leaders club, a student-led initiative that sees children serve their school community as ambassadors of online safety.

Liz Vikmanis, the club’s facilitator, said: “We’re extremely grateful for Inspire Technology’s support. They’ve provided club badges that help build identity around school and their donation of refurbished iPads reinforces to our children the key messages of recycling and sustainability.”

The company’s founder Wendan Wang said: “The Digital Leaders project develops children’s presentation skills and provides a firm foundation. In addition, we are exploring the possibility of helping schools like Eastlands deal with their old technology through our corporate recycling programme.”

Year 5 pupil Mabel said: “The badges are brilliant! I really enjoy working as a team and helping keep my friends safe online.”
