Children in New Milton Junior School will learn about internet safety thanks to a local community conscious business.
The Parlour Hair Boutique on Christchurch Road in New Milton has sponsored a class with educational books for New Milton Junior School.
Children at the school will now use the books and educational resources to teach them about Internet Safety and Cyber Bullying as well as the dangers of social media, on-line gaming and the importance of keeping their personal information safe.
The book, Caught in the Web, is part of the Barney and Echo series and also comes with educational resources aimed at providing fun and interactive ways for primary school children to learn about important social issues. The series is published by the Police Community Clubs of Great Britain; an organisation set up by serving and retired police officers to help provide a safer life and inclusion to disadvantaged children.
“Molly West and Shane Kellard are proud to have been involved with this important community initiative,” they said.
“It has been great to be able to contribute and support our local children’s education by sponsoring the Caught in the Web books. We would like to wish all the children good luck as they work through the educational resources.”
Kelly Griffiths is the Barney and Echo books UK project director.
“The Police Community Clubs of Great Britain would like to thank all local community-minded businesses who have backed this school campaign- without them many children would be without this vital educational resource,” she said.
