    Each of the city’s nine libraries was accreditedunder the eSmart Library Service, an initiative developed in partnership between the Telstra Foundation and The Alannah and Madeline Foundation.

    The eSmart program, first launched in August 2012, is now implemented in 40 per cent of libraries across Australia.

    It is a cyber-safety system that offers library users tips and guidelines on guarding against onlinesecurity and privacy risks and on downloading content in a legal and ethical way.

    A Logan City Council spokesman said the accreditation of the city’s libraries under the program was a significant milestone.

    He said students from Woodridge State School had been introduced to the program at the Logan Central library in recent weeks.

    “The world-leading program gives library users tools and resources to help improve cybersafety and wellbeing,” he said.

    “Logan City Council’s libraries have committed to making all its facilities eSmart compliant, and will be officially accredited to mark National eSmart Week 2015.”

    Australia’s inaugral National eSmart Week runs from September 7 to 11, with more than 550 schools and libraries across Australia taking part in activities to tackle cyberbulling and promote digital literacy.

    A property in his former hometown of Wellington, in NSW’s Central West, was also searched.

    However, he has strenuously denied any involvement in William’s disappearance. Police have said the searches of Mr Spedding’s propertieswerejust one of a number of lines of inquiry into William’s disappearance.

    Mr Spedding said he recorded the video to correct “inaccurate” reports that he was supposed to have beenat William’s grandmother’s house on the day the toddler went missing.

    He said he first attended the house on Tuesday, September 9, and then returned on September 18 but had not been in the house, or even the same street on September 12, the day William disappeared.

    “I have not been in the Tyrrell house or to the Tyrrell house, or to the street, before, between or after these dates,” he said.

    “The media have reported that I was supposed to attendthe Tyrrell house on the 12th of September 2014, this being the day of William’s disappearance.

    “I wish to make it perfectly clear that this claim is completely false.

    “I did not make any indication, of any nature, which would lead to any person to believe that I was attend [sic] the Tyrrell house on the 12th of September 2014.”

    Stewart Smith –

    The team captain and a stalwart defender. Stewart has a solid strike and will clear play from the back lines.

    Bevan Alcock –

    Bevan has had a great season in the back lines and will be a pivotal player on Saturday.

    Nathan Skeen –

    A veteran of the Magpies, Nathan is a morale booster from the back, he backs up his team-mates.

    Callum Alcock –

    One of the side’s young stars, Callum brings plenty of pace to the team and contests the ball hard.

    Rowan Gay (floater) –

    One of the team’s new additions, Matt is building a big name for himself with a good season.

    Ben Mead –

    On the back of another good year, Ben will be a standout player in the grand final.

    Kyle Campbell –

    The final new addition to the team, Kyle is not afraid to get in the thick of play and has a solid strike.

    Grant Owens –

    A danger player, Grant has a deceptively strong strike and combines well with his team-mates.

    Bailey Young –

    Bailey works off the fringes, but is also a danger man in front of the net.

    Ray Summerell –

    Ray is another gun on the fringes, but a good utility across the park.

    Jimmy Russell –

    Keep an eye out for a big game from Jimmy as the Magpies look to claim the premiership.
