For students

ThinkUKnow presentations for students

Our student presentations are available for Kindergarten/Prep to Year 12, and are tailored specifically to the current topical issues each age group might face online.

The student presentations are delivered in each jurisdiction by ACT Policing, New South Wales Police Force, Northern Territory Police, Queensland Police Service, South Australia Police, Tasmania Police, Victoria Police and Western Australia Police.

We kindly request a minimum of six weeks’ notice for all bookings.

Due to police operational requirements, all presentations are subject to presenter availability.

If you are seeking a presentation as an education session in direct response to an incident, please provide information in the booking form ‘comments’ section. This booking will be prioritised where possible.

The presentations will generally run for 45 minutes, however we recommend allowing an extra 15 minutes for questions and further discussion.

To get the most out of our program, we recommend that schools book both parent, carer and educator and student presentations around the same time as they have been designed to align to ensure adults receive complementary information to assist them in communicating with children and young people about the technology they use.

Submit an Expression of Interest

Presentations are currently unavailable due to COVID-19. In accordance with advice from the Australian Federal Government, ThinkUKnow has made this decision in the interest of wellbeing of our volunteers, presenters and school communities.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and advise when our bookings are back up and running.

In the meantime, please refer to our online resources for parents, carers and educators.
