As a school we are an eSmart school, meaning we promote the message to be ‘Smart, Safe and Responsible’ in everything we do online. Children and families continue to increase their use of technology and opportunities to interact online. With these increasing opportunities comes an increased chance for things to go wrong. It is a part of our role to educate children to be the best online citizens they can be.
Through our work as an eSmart school, we recognise the important role that schools play in ensuring that children understand the acceptable way to use connected technologies and to interact with others. By educating all children on what it means to be ‘smart, safe and responsible’ we work to protect the wellbeing of all both at school and at home. The eSmart message is one that should be shared by all staff in the school. It is taught stand alone as needed as well as incorporated into other learning opportunities.
If you have concerns about online activities involving your child please discuss with your classroom teacher.
Please note: All children bringing mobile devices to school are to drop them off at the Office before school For more information about eSmart see https://www.esmart.org.au/
