Schools activity programme for safer internet day

Safer Internet Day is on Tuesday 6 February 2018. This year our aim is for all schools in East Ayrshire to address the Safer Internet Day messages in some way across the week of the event.

Across East Ayrshire we have some competitions with great prizes to help children celebrate the day. Closing date for all entries is Monday 12 February 2018.

We have also provided suggestions for activities for everyone aged 3-18.

We ask that you share as much as possible on Twitter and tweet to us @EACHWBTeam. Don’t forget to add #SID2018.
