Free sessions on staying safe on social media are being offered to school pupils across the Daventry area.

With more and more young people using social media at home and on their phones, it can be hard for parents to help them navigate the fast-changing world of apps and networks.

Organised by local law firm Cartwright King, director and criminal defence solicitor, Andrew Brumhill will deliver his ‘Who Killed Dion’ seminar which can be part of schools’ personal, social, health and economic curriculum.

The hour-long session aims to make students aware of the potential dangers of social networks using a real-life case.

During the workshop children will watch a DVD to gather the necessary information required so that they can then participate in an open discussion and be asked questions on who they think ‘killed 
Dion’.

The activity is based on an unfortunate real-life case where the use of social media and networking was involved to organise a gathering in a park to attack the victim in question.

Students will take on different roles to present arguments for or against the influence of social media in relation to this crime as they debate the case.

Finally Andrew will run a quiz where one student can win a £20 iTunes voucher.

Any teachers wishing to hold one of these events should contact Hayley Siong via email hayley.siong@cartwrightking.co.uk or phone 01234 263263.
