During the video conference, Mrs. Netty invites the students to have a dialogue with her about everything. One of the topic chosen was about school orientation period. Some students admit that they do not feel any abuse during the orientation period.
Netty also invites the schools officials to maintain control and supervision on the students' use of mobile phone. "The school could provide a locker in which students could store their personal belonging such as mobile phone during the school time," said netty.
Netty also talked about the pornographic content and how to prevent it. "According to the children, pornographic content is almost there throughout social media and it is hard to avoid it," only we (students) should filter them out, said one of the students during the dialogue. "The trick, is to block" of the social media account, he added.
