Cyber Safety and Digital Citizenship

We have recognized that students are engaging in the online world with increasing frequency and in new ways. This has included instant messaging services, camera phones, chat rooms, email, web logs, profiles and apps they can exchange gossip; share their experiences and also mount bullying campaigns. The school works with students and parents to help them navigate this on-line world and help reduce the risk of students whilst they are online.

To support the student’s on-line learning, the school has trialled, eduPLEX which focuses on building the ability to communicate safely and build and exhibit work in an on-line environment. eduPLEX allows for students to operate in an on-line environment that is safe, controlled and monitored. In prepares them for a digital future in which safe and effective collaboration through digital technologies will be essential.

Testimonials

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.
