Safer Internet Day

As part of Safer Internet Day on Tuesday 5 February, the students of 4-28 participated in an online virtual classroom, facilitated by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner. They joined 1500 other students across Australia to learn and discuss how to stay safe on the internet by using the 4Rs: Respect, Reasoning, Responsibility and Resilience. At the end of the session, the students wrote their own pledges of what they will do to stay safe online. Students particularly enjoyed seeing their responses to questions and discussion topics displayed on the screen, along with feedback from other schools.

Digital Citizenship School Agreement

At the beginning of every year, teachers and students discuss responsible behaviours that are expected when using digital technologies at our school. After this discussion, students sign a Digital Citizenship School Agreement, which goes home for you to see and talk about with your child. This form should be returned to school as soon as possible.

Headphones

Please ensure your child has a set of headphones to use with digital devices at school. These headphones are securely stored at school for use over the year. Headphones should be named and sent to school in a suitable labelled bag or container.

New Smart TVs

We have recently purchased three Smart TVs to replace aging interactive whiteboards in classrooms. We will be trialling these devices with the intention of gradually replacing all interactive whiteboards. Hopefully, the improved images offered by the Smart TVs will continue to enhance our students’ learning.
