Cybersafety

Cybersafety Help Button

In an increasingly complex digital world, the school remains conscious of the role it plays, together with family and community, to assist students to safely negotiate online material.   A cybersafety focus is included in the Pastoral Care Program and staff are reminded to consider cybersafety as a part of their educational program.

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 .
