Surman talks internet safety at school


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Ahead of today’s global Safer Internet Day, Cherries vice-captain Andrew Surman was a special guest at a Bournemouth school to talk about the importance of staying safe online.

Surman headed to Bournemouth Collegiate School along with the AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust to help deliver the popular Connect with Care project on the subject and hand out prizes to some of the students.

Connect with Care is sponsored by IT Support Business (ITSB) Ltd, which is based in London and Bournemouth.

The IT support and security specialist became an official partner of the Community Sports Trust halfway into the 2016/17 season and is continuing the relationship now, over two years later.

Lee Dredge, CEO of ITSB, said: “It’s about being safe online and using the internet safely. Within the schools themselves we look after the ICT infrastructure and keeping pupils safe while they’re in school and as part of that I feel we have a duty to help educate for personal use for the children and the parents as well.

“It’s really good to be involved and good to be here with Andrew today, the children are really enjoying themselves and it’s a great way to learn, the pupils are really motivated an excited about today.”

Surman, who is the ambassador for the project, also spoke about his experience at the school.

“Being a father myself, internet safety is of utmost importance to me to keep them safe,” the Cherries midfielder explained. “The kids seem like a really good group, we had a question and answer session and they asked some really good questions.

“They’ve come up with some really good ideas and it’s important to touch base with these kids because sometimes they may not be aware of the dangers online.”

Other CST partners include Yellow Buses, Curtiss-Wright and Goadsby.
