Wellbeing Pillar 4 Online safety

In today’s House Assembly we have started discussing the first take away point for the 4th Pillar of our Wellbeing Programme.

Online Life Vs Real Life

Our House Advocate was Emad who took over the job of running the session and launching the debate with his housemates.

How many hours per day do you spend on your phone?
Which social media do you have? 
Thinking of your followers – do you know them all?
On a normal day, do you speak more with friends in person, or via your phone?
Do you use your phone in the last 30 minutes before sleeping?
From what age do you think a young person should be allowed on Instagram / TikTok / Snapchat?
Do you think people only show a ‘good side’ of life on social media?
Have you ever experienced something negative online? 
Are we conscious of how much time we spend on our phones – do we spend an equal amount of time living offline?
Answers differ from person to person and it was great to see how all the group engaged into the planned reflective activity.
Thank you Emad for the preparation work you have done and for taking on the challenge of presenting in front of everyone.
Finally, we had some time to discuss, plan and rehearse our Talent Show. We had Timur taking the lead with a couple of suggestions and we are not going to disclose anything but expect an “extravaganza”
