LAST week, eight students from Bishop Challoner, embarked on a journey to Robert May’s School, Odiham - their mission was to become cyber ambassadors.

Marcia Tanyanyiwa, who works for the Office for the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire and Isle of Wight, trained and involved us in many different activities.

All of these activities led us towards our goal.

We found out about a range of different internet crimes and explored many online-related scenarios.

Beth, one of our students, says that she now knows what smishing, dog piling, and grooming is. Do you?

It was also great for students to work with and get to know some students from other Hampshire schools.

The role of a cyber ambassador is to be a point of contact for other students, who have cyber related problems.

We have come away already enthused with plans to spread awareness about cyber safety and to give advice on some of the difficulties and challenges it brings.

We will be leading online-awareness workshops back in school and are grateful for the opportunity to be empowered to make a difference.

We will be adding another dimension to our already-strong team of wellbeing and anti-bullying ambassadors which we believe is so important in our busy and stressful world.
