Cybersmart Day @ IJ

On 12 July, CHIJ (Katong) Primary School commemorated Cybersmart @IJ. On that joyous occasion, Eunos Primary School and CHIJ Our Lady of Good Counsel joined our Cyber Wellness ambassadors in setting up booths to spread Cyber Wellness messages through games and activities. The game booths were well-received and the Cyber Wellness team was overwhelmed with positive responses from the students.

Our school also invited pre-schools in our community to join our Primary 2 students in learning the importance of limiting screen time and how we can inculcate positive cyber habits in our daily lives.

During the opening ceremony of the Cybersmart @IJ, our Cyber Wellness ambassadors kick started the day’s activities with a presentation to their peers and a video montage was played to showcase the projects that the Cyber Wellness team has embarked on this year.

To deepen students’ interest in Cyber Wellness issues, Ms Grace from Kingmaker Consultancy gave a talk on "Social Media, Online Privacy & Online Images". The topic addressed was relevant and interesting, and students were excited to learn more about it.

In preparation for this event, the Cyber Wellness ambassadors had gone through intensive training sessions. In addition, these ambassadors had collaborated with one another to come up with their own games from scratch! They had also created infographic cards with Cyber Safety messages. These works have been printed out as postcards which serve as reminders for us to practise good cyber habits.

It is heart-warming to witness such enthusiasm in students as they partake in the day’s activities.
