Newington School 2015 Presentation.
“Keeping Kids Safe Online”
Cyber informed parents help schools to deal with the online incidents they are trying to sort out almost daily, and most importantly parents need to be part of the solution for keeping kids safer online. Educating students is only a small part of helping them have a safer experience online, parents need to support safe use and keep up with what kids are doing online.
What Do Parents Learn?
Parents leave Leonie’s talks feeling empowered and certainly better informed. They receive very practical tips and insights into what their children are experiencing online. If a parent seminar is held after the cyber safety student talks, they also get feedback from what was discussed during the cyber safety student talks, to help them have conversations around online safety at home.
Schools where Leonie has spoken report that parents who attend Leonie’s talks actually go home and start to make real changes to the way they and their families interact with the digital world. They are more informed about privacy and safety, and know where to go to get help and further their education. They also start to have conversations with their children and other parents about the online world! The messages spread.
Parents who are fearful about technology may start to embrace their childs interest in the digital world. Parents who feel they had it all sorted, have their eyes opened and start to have more interest in what their children are doing online.
Further Education And Practical Solutions
Leonie’s Cyber Safety Manual “Keeping Kids Safe Online” with step by step instructions for safety & privacy settings, underpins the information that parents receive at her presentations. Most parents take the manual home and then they have a practical guide to help them prevent problems BEFORE they happen! The manual is kept constantly up to date.

“Leonie gave an engaging talk that really informed parents of the dangers of the cyber world for young people, without condemning technology itself. Parents were challenged to think about their role in taking charge of technology in the home. She recognised that parents often feel powerless in the face of ever changing possibilities on the internet. Parents made comments to me that their eyes had been opened, and they felt well equipped to talk to their children. Leonie’s publication reinforces her message.” Chris O’Sullivan Deputy Principal Covenant Christian School
As a parent…
I recently attended your Cyber Safety seminar at Manly Village Public School. I just wanted to write to you to say thank you. I found the evening incredibly informative, practical and so valuable in terms of safeguarding and educating my children about staying safe in this fast moving and ever changing cyber world. Karen Wooldridge Parent
As a principal….
‘Since the first Parent Education Session presented by Leonie in 2013, we have noticed that the school is dealing with less incidents of inappropriate behaviour relating to social networking…Leonie’s resources are often referred on to parents to support them in informing themselves of what their child may be exposed to.’ Josie Vescio Principal St Rose Catholic School
