An important and significant aspect of our program is to ensure that students are age appropriately taught to make responsible choices online, keep themselves safe and to understand the community connections of online actions.

Recently GAA and GAAPTA invited Paul Davis, renowned Social Media and online safety expert to come and speak to students in grades 5-8. Mr. Davis spoke to the importance of understanding the reach of social media and how to take steps to keep safe online. Parents attended an evening session and found his presentation very informative and useful!
