I so value the work of Safe on Social Media. Unlike some of the talking heads who tend to dominate the conversation around young people and the online world, Kirra works tirelessly at the coal face - she doesn't just talk about kids, or at them, she works WITH them. In fact, she talks to tens of thousands of teens every year across Australia (and, might I add, she makes a point of also visiting the smaller rural towns who usually can't access quality presentations).
Follow her page to stay informed. She won't try to scare you, or shame you. She will, instead, offer realistic, relevant and respectful guidance. She's my go-to cyber advisor (not a sponsored post, I just love sharing the work of those who truly champion our kids).

The Safe on Social presentations were very informative and engaging. Our Year 7 and Year 8 students walked away with extensive knowledge of online safety, upcoming social media apps to be aware of and also learnt how to protect their online identity. The examples Kirra shared were fantastic and really helped the students relate to a topic that has been extensively discussed.
Kirra used ‘real-talk’ with the students, something which I have found rare with other presentations. Things like nude selfies, online predators and the severe impacts of bullying, including suicide, need to be discussed and Kirra discussed all of these topics thoroughly.
Thank you for empowering the students and the staff at Greenwood College.
