The online world can be a dangerous place for young minds, especially in the rapidly changing social media age.
Senior students from Good Shepherd Catholic College were taught about the risks that can arrive whilst surfing the web, on Wednesday August 14.
The students participated in an online student protection campaign called #makeachoiceyouwontregret.
The campaign involved students from around Queensland to create and share a video that discussed topics like sexting, online bullying, consequences and support.
Student protection coordinator for Townsiville Catholic education Katherine Olsen said students really listened to other students.
"The campaign is student led, so it's students working with other students and we recognised that the method what works," Ms Olsen said.
"The students demonstrated a willingness to spread the message to other students about the importance of being safe and appropriate choices on social media and to think about the consequences involved."
Assistant Principle of Good Shepherd Jade Marinelli said the campaign also focused on online culture.
"We also talk about the culture that takes place on social media and how their online choices can affect their lives in the future," Ms Marinelli said.
The #makeachoiceyouwontregret campaign came from listening to students and recognising that they are a powerful voice and there is an untapped wisdom in the voices of our young people.
