MP listens to students' life online ...
Damian Hinds, MP for East Hampshire, spent Friday morning with a student panel, representative of all year groups in the school. Mr Hinds is heavily involved in getting the Online Safety Bill through Parliament. It is an internationally-leading piece of legislation which seeks to tackle some of the many issues around online safety and the place of social media in the lives of young people. He wanted to talk directly to local students, keen to hear their thoughts on what could be done to improve life online, and help him represent East Hampshire’s young people in Parliament.
Our students talked to the MP on many topics, including their own online usage and what content they view, from websites to social media and gaming. They chatted about some of the rules of accessing online content and put forward their own ideas on what the Bill should include.
It was an incredibly engaging hour with the MP who came away with a wealth of really useful information. Our students were outstanding and should be incredibly proud of their contribution.
