We educate children as lifelong learners to thrive in our rapidly changing and increasingly connected world.
CyberSafety Parent Forum
Have you registered for the CyberSafety parent forum with Susan McLean this Thursday?
It is being held in the school hall from 6.30pm to 8.15pm.
Statistics show one in five (close to three-quarters of a million) Australian schoolchildren and one in three adults have experienced cyber bullying.
This includes being socially excluded, being called names or having mean things said about them, having lies or rumours spread, receiving repeated unwanted messages, being sent inappropriate content or having threats made against them.
HALF of all Australian children using the internet are “friending” strangers online.
It is extremely important that we keep up to date with what our children are doing online and make ourselves aware of the issues being faced by teenagers.
Susan will address many areas about online safety including
* What kids are doing online
* The apps they are using
* Online grooming
* Potential dangers
Susan is an expert in CyberSafety. She has worked as a police officer involved in CyberSafety and now shares her knowledge with various audiences around Australia. You may have even seen her on TV sharing her knowledge.

National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence
Today our school is taking a stand together for the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence. Around two million students from 4575 Australian schools stand united to send a powerful message that bullying and violence are never okay. Students will be participating in a variety of activities related to developing good social relationships, bullying and cyberbullying. Yesterday our year 5 and 6 students participated in an online virtual classroom where they were asked to imagine a future free from cyber bullying and what they can do towards achieving this. Don’t forget to book for our CyberSafety Parent Forum with Susan Mclean on Thursday 26th April. Susan is a very knowledgeable and engaging speaker who will address what it is like growing up online and what are kids are actually doing online.

The day has finally arrived and we are all very excited. Come and join the fun between 5pm and 8pm. We are looking forward to seeing you tonight.
