Diabetes Youth Wellington Quiz Night

Scots College Parents Association present an evening with Cyber-Safety export Susan McLean.
Wednesday 5 July 7-9pm, Scots College
In this modern and ever changing society, technology is growing at an exponential rate and so are the risks. As parents, are you fully confident that you are aware of what your child(ren) are doing online and the risks and challenges they face with technology?

Join us for an evening with Susan, Australia’s foremost expert in the area of Cyber-safety and young people. Her informative and entertaining session for parents will open your eyes to the pitfalls our children could fall into online and how you can help navigate this tricky landscape with your child(ren). She will cover the positive benefits of technology as well as what parents need to be aware of and will provide you with an opportunity to find out all you’ve ever wanted to know about cyber-safety.

Tickets $25 and include a glass of wine.
