We were super lucky to have two members of the police force come to visit our school today! Leading senior constable Steve, and his partner senior constable Carol gave us a presentation on what their job entails and the three most common criminal offences comitted by young people. These are assault, theft and criminal damage. Cyber bullying and cyber offences come under the ‘assault’ heading. We found out that people can be arrested and charges at the age of just ten years old, and that you could have a permanent criminal record if you were found guilty in court. I hope it was a big reminder to always choose to do the right thing, even when we are doing things like using the internet, social media and playing online games!
