Pupils’ access to internet has created a plethora of challenges for schools. In this context, the present contribution deals with the issue of the illegal Internet behaviour of the primary school children which has not been given much attention in Primary Education and is not mentioned in the Curricula. Researches conducted show that most pupils have been involved in Internet misuse behaviour. A research we conducted among 100 pupils of Primary Education at schools of Northern Greece aged between 10 and 12 years confirmed that pupils’ lack of knowledge concerning internet misuse and illegal behaviour. Pupils are illegally copying and downloading software, music, movies and games from the internet with little consciousness of their wrongdoing and the consequences this might bear. Our suggestions consist on ways that the teaching of ‘right’ internet behaviour can be introduced in class and how the teachers can help their pupils to achieve it.
