It’s never been more important to educate young minds about how to stay safe online. Optus is thrilled to invite students and their teachers to a free, live session on internet safety featuring Supercar Star and 2021 Bathurst champion Chaz Mostert.

Through discussion, Q&A and interactive quizzes, students will learn about safe ways to connect with others, cyberbullying and online behaviour, and how best to protect themselves when using apps and games.

The session is linked to the Australian Curriculum outcomes for Technologies in addition to the General Capabilities of Information and Communications Technologies and Personal and Social Capability.

Don’t miss out on this chance to ensure your students get the tools they need to become responsible online users!
