About ‘In The Know’ Information Series
This initiative is an opportunity for parents and carers to better understand and deal with contemporary challenges affecting young people today so they can exercise greater positive influence in the lives of the young people in their care.
It demonstrates our commitment to helping young people from the school gain an understanding of society, access positive role models, and form positive relationships outside the school setting.
We hope to organise at least one session as part of the In The Know series every term. Galilee School staff will be available to speak to parents and carers after each session. Light refreshments will be available.
In The Know: Online Safety
Are you comfortable talking to your children about technology and the internet?
The first session of our ‘In The Know’ series is being delivered by the Australian Federal Police (AFP). The session will cover what young people SEE, SAY and DO online, the challenges they may face, and how to report and get help if things go wrong. This session is part of the ThinkUKnow program by the AFP.
When: 16 June 2021, 5 pm to 6:30 pm
Where: Communities@Work Galilee School Holder Campus, 172 Dixon Drive Holder ACT 2611

We strongly encourage all parents, carers and teachers at the Galilee School to attend the presentation. ThinkUKnow Australia is an evidence-based education program delivered nationally to prevent online child sexual exploitation.
The presentation will be delivered by a local law enforcement member and an industry volunteer. The presentation is pro-technology and addresses topics including self-generated online child sexual exploitation material, online grooming, image-based abuse, sexual extortion, and how to encourage help-seeking behaviour.
This is a fantastic opportunity for you to learn more about young people and the online environment, and how you can help them to be safe and responsible users of technology.
