CORE to support Safer Internet Day for schools/centres


CORE is supporting the international Safer Internet Day 2015, led by NetSafe and celebrated on 10 February 2015. Safer Internet Day is celebrated worldwide to encourage the safe and positive use of the internet and digital technologies among children and young people.

“With the growing use of digital devices in both schools and the wider community, Safer Internet Day brings attention to promoting safer, responsible use of digital technologies among young people,” says Karen Melhuish Spencer. “This is a good reminder to our early years’ centres, schools and kura to practice responsible, purposeful use of web-capable tools.”

CORE have developed some top tips for schools, which can be downloaded and printed in poster format. The SID website also has ideas for activities that schools can participate in.

“NetSafe and CORE have worked together for many years and we’re glad to work alongside an organisation who understand the purpose and nature of SID. We know that schools can benefit from being aware of the digital challenges that young people can experience online. It’s also important to know where to get information about preventing issues from arising and how to respond if they occur” said Sean Lyons from NetSafe.

Safer Internet Day is also supported in New Zealand by the Police, Vodafone, NZ Principals’ Federation and many other New Zealand organisations.

About CORE Education

CORE is a not-for-profit organisation with 180+ staff and a sole aim to ‘push the boundaries of educational possibility’, ultimately focused on the learning needs of our children in schools/centres. We achieve this focus by working with the Ministry of Education on strategic projects, and directly with schools and educators across all sectors, to develop and enhance skills and knowledge across many key areas such as digital, e-learning, modern learning, via a range of short courses, in-depth programmes, resources and consultancy work.
