Online Safety

The internet and other technology offer a vast opportunity for you to learn and for teachers to support and enhance your learning.

The school is also very aware that educating our young people and our school community in the safe use of these technologies is vital, not only for their safe use in school, but also in life.

In Computer Science lessons in Years 7 to 9, a topic on Online Safety is covered each year in which you are reminded about being safe and responsible when online. We have focused on social media and how to keep safe when using it.

You will learn about how not to share your personal information or photos with people you do not know and some of the consequences that could happen if you do not keep your information private.

We look at problems with the different kinds of popular social media such as YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat, and offer practical advice on how to stay safe.
