Souths Cares engaged over 3,200 students on International Safer Internet Day to promote safe internet use to primary and high school students.
eSafety workshops were delivered at 13 primary and high schools throughout South Eastern and South Western Sydney, focusing on key issues including cyberbullying, online privacy, scams and gaming.

The initiative was well supported by the Rabbitohs first grade squad, with a total of 18 players co-presenting the eSafety workshops and encouraging students to stay safe whilst on-line.
Alisha Parker-Elrez, Souths Cares General Manager said the initiative was a huge success.
“We were thrilled to be able to see so many students throughout metropolitan Sydney on Safer Internet Day and promote some important key messages to both primary and high school students," Parker-Elrez said.
"I wanted to give a special mention to the Rabbitohs playing squad who have thrown their support behind the initiative and continue to support Souths Cares various community programs.”
