A DETAILED talk on the perils of the internet will be delivered by a veteran detective later this month.
Former Queensland police detective Brett Lee will speak on cyber dangers for teenagers, focusing on grooming, bullying and online protection.
King’s College has organised the dinner function, aimed at preparing parents, teachers and kids to guard against threats in the digital world. The former detective spent 16 years in the child exploitation field.
King’s College principal Ian McKay said the college had invited Mr Lee after seeing him speak in Warrnambool three years ago.
Mr McKay said teachers were intervening as social media disputes boiled over in classrooms.
“A lot of inappropriate things that I used to hear in the playground are now online.”
Mr Lee will also workshop with parents and teachers at the school.
The dinner will be at the City Memorial Bowls Club on June 16 at 6.30pm. Tickets are available through King’s College.
