IOW Safeguarding Conference

posted 17 Oct 2018, 06:18 by N Nelson
Last week 14 Prefects visited Cowes Yacht Haven to attend the annual IOW Safeguarding Conference. The theme this year was "Growing up online" and three groups of students presented on key topic areas related to this to a crowd of over 200 professionals. Jacob Brown also co-hosted the day with the Chair of the Safeguarding board. 

The day was a massive success, with all the students present engaging in group discussion and evaluation of key aspects of the delivery of the key messages around safeguarding across the island.  

The organiser sent us an email afterwards and said ' I am emailing to say how wonderful it was to have your students at our Annual Safeguarding Conference last week. They were absolutely charming and went from being very nervous in the morning to very confident  - some were even volunteering to help me with the roving microphones or contributing to group discussions and feeding back to the larger group! It was a pleasure to have them take part in our conference'.
