Mission Heights Junior College would like to raise awareness to students and parents regarding the ransomware (virus) called “Wanna Cry” or “Wanna Crypt”. You would have seen it on the news lately since last Friday. There are some simple steps you can take to keep your device safe on the internet;
- Don’t open suspicious files that are emailed to you, even if you know the sender.
- Don’t download files from places such as Pirate Bay, Putlocker, Mega, Mediafire or any other file sharing websites.
- Always keep your machines (Windows or Mac) constantly up to date. For Windows users, update to Windows 10. This includes your home computers.
- Backup your files regularly. You can use Google Drive for this. If you back up to an external drive, make sure you store it away from your computer in a safe place.

Michael Peacock played in the Mel Young Basketball Tournament in Tauranga over the Easter break, representing the Counties Manukau U13 top team. Michael’s team won all 3 of their pool games. Although they lost their semi final, they won their final game meaning they finished 3rd overall in their age group, gaining the bronze medal. There were ten U13 Boys teams in the competition, so this is a wonderful result!
