Focus on - cyberbullying

12/11/2014
 

Our focus this week is all about internet safety.  We were lucky enough last week to have a trainer from ACMA come to our school and work with students, teachers and parents about Cyberbullying, internet safety and tips and hints on keeping safe on the internet.  There was so much to learn, talk about and take away from our sessions.  Our students in Year 5, 6, 7 were participating in discussions about how they keep themselves safe on the internet, what tools they have access to, what are appropriate websites and what websites could be unsafe.  It was amazing to see how many students had regular and unsupervised access to the internet…a sign of our times.

Our teachers were also trained in the areas of cyber safety, apps to be aware of and ways to talk with students about keeping themselves and their families safe.  Over the next 3 weeks, teachers will be teaching lessons to your children on key strategies that help keep them safe:

  1. If they are not a known friend in your contacts – DELETE DELETE DELETE

  2. Putting your phone/IPAD settings to Privacy – only sharing information with your friends

  3. Check your APPS – are they suitable?  If not DELETE DELETE DELETE
