The Lost Princess

For this session of RRR we watched a short film called Lost Princess and it was about privacy online, and how to avoid getting in bad situations. There were 3 characters, and each were caught in a dangerous scenario. These stories are true, and has happened to people although different children acted them out.

Out of the 3 characters I chose Kieran, an 11 boy who is addicted to gaming online. Everyday after school he would go home and game, even way after him parents went to bed. This continued until he was 15 years old! He even dropped out of school because he wanted to game. Eventually, he realised what he was doing with his life,and how he could improve. He joined a clinic to help people like him, and started doing the things that video gaming made him forget.

Here is Kieran:

It negatively affected his life in a way that he would no longer hang out with friends, almost never went outside for fresh air and hardly talked or socialised with anyone!

They way that this problem came to an end was that Kieran realised how much time he spent on him games, and what his life had become. Dropping out of school, losing friends, now he must fix this.

To prevent this from happening, I would listen to parents when they say to get off your games and spend some time doing the things you love. Overall, I believe it makes you a lot happier, and gives you more free time.

The message that I took away from this film was that the internet can be an awesome place to play games, contact friends, ect. But the online world can be a dangerous place if you share your private information, let people know your phone number, email or passwords. If anything suspicious is happening, someone asking for you private information or to meet up when you don’t know them personally, tell a trusted adult.

I really enjoyed this film and would recommend to everyone.

THINK Online


This week in Triple R we learnt about Digital Citizenship. We came up with something called a THINK acronym. An acronym is kind of like a poem. Here is an example:



Never forget

But instead we used the word THINK, because you have to think before you post online.

Here is a short video on the acronym for think that my partner and I came up with.

I believe that every interaction online must be:

True, because lying is wrong and any rumour or secret that isn’t true may hurt someone.

Helpful, because there is no point of posting something that has no meaning. Someone could be looking for help on something, and you could be the person that helps them.

Inspiring, because inspiring people helps them create that confidence to do what they what.

Necessary, because there is no use in posting something that is not needed, you will get nothing from it.

Kind, because think about this. Would you like to be the reason that someone is hurt or sad? I know I wouldn’t.

My own acronym for online behaviour!
