A CRANBOURNE primary school has done its bit in the fight for cyber safety with a creative cartoon based around the theme.
With a $10,000 Bullystoppers grant from the government, students from Cranbourne Carlise Primary School worked with illustrator Ben Sanders to create a cartoon.
The short clip was about protecting passwords and 10 lucky children went to the city to record the voices at the Creativa Web Videos studio.
Information and communication technology co-ordinator Tobin Cuss said the children auditioned and voted for those who would have their voices recorded for the final version. He said it was about education, but in a fun way.
Mr Cuss said the students thoroughly enjoyed the process.
“Students came up with the story lines and the illustrator did the pics,” he said.
“The school really prides itself on trying to be up to date with technology,” he said.
“Understanding how to use online accounts is important for children in this day and age,” he said.
