Back to School With The White Hatters - Interview

Back to school for many parents is a dizzying time. There’s the search for new runners, dealing with kids nerves and all those meetings and paperwork. Meet the teacher, rent a band instrument, go to PAC meetings…If it’s a full schedule for kids — you can be sure that parents are there in the background trying to keep it all on track.

Heads up! If a form comes by your kitchen table, or your school website says there’s a visit coming from the White Hatters, take them up on that. This father-son team of Darren and Brandon Laur are staples in many of our schools as the authority on internet and social media safety. They’ve been running various programs for years in the Greater Victoria community where over the years internet and social media has become a vast and somewhat unknown corner of our kids life. This is where the White Hatters come in.

Many local schools invite these internet safety experts to speak to our kids in an assembly. The kids will get a chance to chat about how to be safe on the internet, how to protect their privacy and tactics to deal with cyberbullying with the White Hatters. So, if you see that they’re running a parallel parent’s session — get that in your calendar.

Join Mel Z in a chat with Brandon Laur as the White Hatters kick off a very busy school season.
