Hawthorn West Primary School invites you to an evening with guest speaker Susan McLean advising us on all topics, tips and strategies for your family to be Cyber Safe.
- When: THURSDAY March 1st 2018
- Where: HWPS Library
- Time: 7:00pm

Susan McLean is Australia’s foremost expert in the area of cyber safety and Internet use by young people. Widely known as the ‘Cyber Cop’, she was the first Victoria Police Officer appointed to a position involving cyber safety and young people.
Susan will present to the Hawthorn West Community about keeping your children safe online. Most children now have electronic devices and mobile phones from a young age that are connected to the Internet.
We strongly encourage one parent per family to attend the evening in order to help prepare you with knowledge and strategies for keeping your children safe online.
‘Parenting in the 21st century requires you to be able to parent in the digital space. Technology is firmly entrenched in our lives and that of our children so we need the tools to deal with issues as they arise.’ Susan McLean
