A LOCAL photographer has teamed up with Dalmellington PS for a special photography project to promote internet safety.

Nicola Moore involved pupils and the community in her photos which show individuals with phones in front of their eyes, emphasising the dangers of speaking to strangers online.

Principal Teacher Ashley Mclurkin explained: “Nicola’s photo made me think, you don’t know who is behind the screen, which links into what we’re saying to the kids.

“We put the project together on the school blog to get the message across that you shouldn’t give details out to anyone online.

“It’s sometimes hard to engage kids during remote learning but it really captured their attention.”
