Chilliwack District Parent Advisory Council and Fraser Valley Distance Education School Parent Advisory Council is hosting a CyberSafe workshop at Sardis secondary on May 19 at 7 p.m.

Developed in partnership with the Virtual School Society, CyberSafe is an interactive workshop that will help parents and all responsible adults better understand the realities and challenges of the digital landscape.

Participants will work through a primer of cyber safety issues, ranging from how kids communicate through Facebook and other social networking media to the recourse available to parents when they encounter inappropriate online content or behavior. They’ll be introduced to cyber risks like security, privacy, identity theft, and online bullying.  And they’ll learn straightforward steps to communicate effectively with the digital natives in their family, and help them engage safely in their online world.

To learn more or to register for the workshop, contact Kirsten Brandreth at 604-824-1362 or by email Brandreth@shaw.ca

Registration is not mandatory.
