eSafety Webinar Reflection ft. eSafety Greg

Today we did an eSafety webinar about cyber safety as a cohort of all the 5/6s. We all were supposed to answer the questions in groups of two but the login did not work so we did it all together. We did well in answering the questions and got them all right. All of our knowledge on cyber safety put together made us all do really well in the webinar, which was kind of a test. It was about keeping private things in your home secure. It was called ‘My Home, My Rules’. Here are some notes that I took on the day:

Privacy is about controlling your personal information in the outside world. 12% of young people (grades 3-6) have experienced fraud or downloaded a virus to their device. Be safe and try to identify ransomware, viruses and scamming messages. Scamming messages do not always come from the people that you don’t know, some people who you think are your friends may betray you, scam you or cyber bully you. Keep all passwords strong.

How can you take action to protect yourself from things like this?

-Always try to identify a scam message by looking at what the message say and if something pops up on your screen, stop to read it. NEVER click on it first!

-If someone sends you are friend request it is OK to accept it, unless they start asking you for personal information, then decline them or just do not reply.

-If you do get a friend request, always come to school the next day and just let your friends know what has happened and ask them if it was them sending you a friend request, if it was then it is fine, if it is not, do not tell them anything.

-Do not use your real name on a game or website, choose a nick name, for example Zezdo23, because using your real name could be dangerous, and even that could be putting out too much information to the outside world.

-Never share your passwords.

-Set firewalls on things to keep them private.

100wc-…but I didn’t understand the instructions…

I told you exactly what to do! The King needs his wedding cake by noon!” I yelled.

“But I didn’t understand the instructions!” said the baker. “I thought you said cupcakes,” he says taking out a tray of them.

“That’ll have to do…” I said, taking the tray out to the wedding room.

I show them to the prince. He looks at them once and slams the tray to the ground and the tray hits is with a thud.


I was fired that day.

Herald Sun Kids-Hawaii Volcano

Fact 1: The Volcano in Hawaii had an earth quake after it which got up to a magnitude of 6.9!

Fact 2: The earth let out toxic gasses and some parts of Hawaii were not safe because of this.

Fact 3: Most of the volcanic activity is around the Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens areas or towns of the Island of Hawaii, also called The Big Island.

Question 1: How did gasses come out of the ground?

Question 2: How can eruptions occur under water?

Wondering 1: I wonder how these people felt after all he terror. Isn’t this basically what happened to Pompeii, a city in Rome?

100wc-Picture Prompt

My breath cold. My whole body is shaking and my back pressed against against the wall. I look around the blind corner of the wall. There I see the giant golden maned beast standing there, it’s teeth gritted and dripping with saliva. This is the problem with being a night zoo keeper, you could be eaten alive. All I did was try to feed the lion and it got out, and it’s hungry and after me. All I do is run. I sweat till my body can’t squeeze any more sweat out of my sweat glands. Oh no! Dead end…

100wc- …’when did it arrive?’ I said

“Hey Billy, there’s a package for you!” says mum.

“Really?” I ask, my eyes glued to a Pokemon XY book. “When did it arrive?” I said.

“Yesterday,” she says. Mum shows up at my door 10 seconds later with a rectangular shaped package.

Straight away I threw down my comic and grabbed the Pokemon box. I open my first pack. I frantically rush through all the cards to see if I got and good ones. I am worried. This is my first pack, which for me is lucky. I take the next card out. I find a Rainbow Rare Charizard GX!

BTN-Ring of Fire (2009 content)

September 29th, about 7am, a huge earth quake tore through coastal villages in Samoa, turning homes and streets to ruin and leaving people devastated. I understand this will be horrible to live in. The earth quake from the sea floor. Then another earth quake hit Samatra. Could these be connected?  Scientists are looking into this still to see what happenened.

How many people died?

I wonder how they both happened at the same time.


“Stop the car!” I shouted. “Come on dad your driving too fast,”

“No I can’t stop,” he grunts back. His body is stiff against the acceleration pedal.

It is a misty day and we are driving at high speed. I can’t take this anymore. I push him to the side to try to get him to push it. I grab the steering wheel and frantically jerk it to the side. We start weaving through all the lanes including the bike lane.  Suddenly the car flips. Our crimson red car flies through the air. We crash. I visit dad’s grave everyday.

Btn-Anzac Day (Sorry, colour code stuffed up again)

This article talks about a boy named Anzac. He is the fifth person in his family with that name. They have all been named this in memory of his great, great grandfather. He was listed in the army in 1950, and this was a big deal because he was aboriginal and married. This was when the aboriginals weren’t considered as citizens if Australia. Australia’s first part of the war was Gallipoli. They were told it was going to be easy. Why would they say that? I understand that no war is going to be easy. He survived the first war then went to Egypt, then France. Then, was reported missing. Later, in 1960, they found out that he died in action of the war. He was one of 60,000 Australians that died in World War 1. His medals were returned home by his great, great, great grandmother. Then, soon they got given to Anzac’s family. Those medals are the originals, and are probably quite hard to find. Now they celebrate Anzac Day, and not just for Gallipoli, but for people who have risked their lives fighting in the war and protecting our country.
