Online Safety Assembly or Class Play
Online Safety Assembly or Class Play. Whilst this is obviously a very serious subject there are still plenty of opportunities for humour in this performance – largely supplied by two well-meaning but rather naive grandparents!
Cast of 10 – 30 (or above). The script is written for a cast of 30 but this number can easily be adjusted up or down as 25 of the speaking parts are Child 1 – 25 i.e. non-specific. Duration: 10 – 15 minutes (not including music suggestions)
Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and inspire a national conversation. This year it is February 5th.

Child 13: There are things you should be aware of.
Child 14: And the most important of these is to do with your safety.
Grandma: Oh, I always switch everything off at night, don’t you worry!
Grandpa: (Patting Grandma’s knee) No dear. I don’t think that’s the kind of safety they are talking about. Just listen!
Child 15: The internet allows us to explore a whole new world
Child 16: We can go to countries we’ve never been to
Child 17: And meet people in the farthest reaches of the globe.
Child 18: But whilst the majority of these people are good
Child 19: And use the internet for all the right reasons
Child 20: There are a lot that don’t.
Child 21: They want to get to know you for all the wrong reasons.
Child 22: They may want your money
Child 23: They may want to take your identity and use it for bad purposes.
Child 24: Never ever give out personal information to people you do not know.
Child 25: In fact, do not have anything to do with people you do not know. Anyone, apart from your family and friends, are strangers.
Grandma: (Indignantly) But I like strangers! You wouldn’t believe the number of times they’ve helped me across the road!
Child 1: But that’s different. We are talking about strangers online.
Child 2: People you’ve never met
Child 3: People you know nothing about.
