Teacher Kellie Williams is also the e-learning manager at the school and said she was delighted with the award.
“The children have enjoyed the project immensely, empowering the children to learn e-safety was the key,” she said.
“At the time of beginning this project we had just purchased 40 iPads for the school and we had plans to purchase more digital technology in the near future. We strongly believe that digital technology and e-safety go hand in hand.
“We knew that once we had introduced devices such as iPads that children would want them at home too which made educating both pupils and parents even more important. The e-cadet project was perfect for raising awareness of how to stay safe online by educating pupils, parents and teachers.
“The children have been busy doing lots of things- they’ve made songs up and games to help the other children learn the rules to keep safe on the internet. The children even went in to Barclays bank in Flint to tell people how to keep their banking safe.”
She added: “I’m really proud of the children and honoured that their work has been recognised.”
Kelly Griffiths organiser of the Community Education Awards also paid tribute to the children’s hard work.
“Children spend a large amount of time on the internet in this day and age and online safety is vital,” she said.
“The Children at Cornist Park Primary School have done a tremendous job in helping to educate their fellow pupils and I would like to truly congratulate all the teachers and children involved- both e-cadets and their classmates for a brilliant job well done.”
