Would you like to hear about ways to prevent cyber bullying at home or in your school?

If you are parents, caregivers, teachers, kids, or you are simply interested in this topic, you are welcome to come along, listen to an expert and ask for information about ways to address online aggression and intimidation.
Find out how you can prevent cyber bullying from happening to people you know and love.

NEIL MELHUISH, who works for NetSafe – Cybersafety and Security Advice for New Zealand as Programme Leader, will share his knowledge with you and offer lots of advice.
His previous role was at the New Zealand Ministry of Education, where he led the national programme of initiatives, designed to support schools’ use of digital technology.

His presentation will be focusing on

• Cyber-bullying and what is being planned to address it?
• What is cyber-bullying and what impact does it have?
• What is the Harmful Digital Communication Bill, and what is it intended to do?

This will take place on Wednesday, 16 October from 12 noon to 1pm, on the Ground Floor of the Central Library.
