eSmart Week @ P.R.P.S

Park Ridge Primary School is participating in the children’s charity, the Alannah & Madeline Foundation’s National eSmart Week from 2-8 September 2018, to show our commitment to keeping our student’s safe online.

Held to coincide with National Child Protection Week, eSmart Week creates awareness, solutions and ideas and encourages the whole community to be smart, safe and responsible when using digital technology. Our students have been talking about what this might look, sound and feel like.

Mr. Mann expressed his view on cyber safety and participating in eSmart week.  “I think it is important to participate in eSmart week to promote the safe use of digital technologies as young adolescents do not yet possess the social skills to communicate in a non-face-to-face manner due to their brain still developing.”
