The Ministry of Education is taking steps to ensure that Information and Communications Technology is not used to harm or harass persons in a deliberate, repeated and hostile manner.
A release from the Ministry says this has become a growing concern worldwide, and a Cyber Bullying Awareness competition dubbed: Say NO with TECH-GO was recently organized to address the issue.
The activity involved third and fourth form students of Information Technology (IT) and Electronic Document Preparation Management (EDPM), who create electronic documents, like flyers and book marks.
Addressing the presentation ceremony at the conclusion of the competition, Education Officer for IT, Chan-yatt Ram-sa-mooj, said cyber bullying can have serious consequences.
Meanwhile; Howard Campbell, representing McMillan Education, emphasized the company’s commitment to supporting the education sector.
Attimus Charles of Dr. J.P Eustace Memorial Secondary School was awarded 1st place for his work and will receive a 16 gig Apple iPad compliments McMillan Education.
Kelano O’Neil and Elroy Samuel took the 2nd and 3rd positions respectively and will receive Samsung cell phones.
