computer superhero E-Safe Guy zapped in to Shadwell Primary to hand out rewards to pupils there.

The character visited the school thanks to Bramham and Shadwell Federation, who intend to encourage and inform pupils how to safely use information and behave in a confident manner when sending or receiving information via mobile phone, computer or other new technological appliances.

ITC co-ordinator Tony Mallett said: “Key Stage 2 pupils and teachers from both village schools took part in a range of activities aimed at promoting the safe use of multimedia appliances that surround our 21st century world of communication.

“The pupils were divided into six groups and visited six activities within school, partially run with the help of pupils from Allerton Grange Secondary School.

“Activities ranged from hands-on use of computers, role play, a talk by the local police officer, problem-solving and creative activities, all designed to provide the pupils with a broad overview of topics.”

He added: “It was a great day and thanks go to the school council who have been involved in helping promote this event.”

A celebration assembly was held at the end of the day where all pupils received a certificate of participation from E-Safe Guy.
