In a bid to promote online safety and to celebrate this Safer Internet Day, Bright World Guardianships asked their students to share positive messages online to their friends and followers. To mark the annual celebration, the #PositveVibesOnly campaign encourages students to send out at least one positive tweet, direct message, or status to their followers and friends.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, Safer Internet Day sees hundreds of organisations join a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. The Internet Centre is a partnership of three leading charities – Childnet International, the Internet Watch Foundation and South West Grid for Learning, (SWGfL) – with a shared mission to make the internet a better place for children and young people.
Guardian students to spread #PositiveVibesOnly
In keeping with this year’s theme of “Together for a better internet”, Bright World, a leading Guardianship Organisation, asked their students to help spread positive messages using the #PositiveVibesOnly hashtag.
Offering Guardianship to overseas students at Boarding Schools and Universities, the company’s campaign aims to shed light on the already much discussed issue of social media and its impact on mental health. With over 27 thousand studying at British schools without their parents, international students can be vulnerable and at risk when they are online.
“By inspiring our students to use the internet in a way which is positive for their own mental well-being, we hope that others will take notice and follow the trend.” Jenny Rumble, Safeguarding & Operations Manager, Bright World

About Bright World Guardianships:
The majority of UK Boarding Schools insist on a UK based guardian for all their international students to take care of them when the school closes for short holidays or in an emergency if and when a child is asked to leave School during term time. Bright World is one of the UK’s leading AEGIS accredited Guardianship Organisations, offering guardianship and host family stays to international students at over 400 UK Boarding Schools, Colleges and Universities across the UK.
There is no law that dictates a student has to have an AEGIS accredited guardian. AEGIS (The Association for The Education & Guardianship for International Students) offers parents the only benchmark for good guardianship in the UK. The Charity employs ISI and Ofsted trained inspectors to re-inspect their member Guardianship Organisations every four years.
