Cybersafety

Cybersafety Help Button

The Federal Government realises the importance of cybersafety for young people.  At Mitcham Girls High School we have a comprehensive cybersafety program to ensure our students have the knowledge to act safely in an online environment.  As part of this initiative, the government has made available to schools and families some cybersafety software designed to provide young people with immediate online access to cybersafety information and assistance.  It provides counselling, reporting and educational resources designed to assist young people in dealing with online risks including cyber bullying, unwanted contact, scams and frauds and offensive and inappropriate material.

Mitcham Girls High School's Cybersafety Help Button is available on the school’s curriculum network and the same software is available for families to download onto personal computers.  To access this free application visit the departments website at www.dbcde.gov.au/helpbutton.  We encourage all families to access this software and work with us to minimise risks associated with on line forums and social networking sites.

ThinkUKnow

ThinkUKnow is an Internet Safety program delivering interactive training to parents, carers and teachers through primary and secondary schools across Australia using a network of accredited trainers.

Created by the UK Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre, ThinkUKnow Australia has been developed by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and Microsoft Australia.

The Internet and associated technologies offer many benefits to young people.   They can communicate with friends and family from all over the world, access all types of information for school projects, and express themselves creatively, all with the click of a button.

Young people are quick to take up the latest developments in technology and are often the first to know when something new comes along.  They are growing up in an ever-changing technological environment and can have a lot of fun doing so.

As educators and parents we must do our best to guide girls and young women to use this resource in a safe and responsible manner.

The ThinkUKnow website is a valuable resource well worth visiting .
