Be an eSafe Kid: A better internet starts with you

As part of the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence, today, students from Churchlands Primary school participated in another national webinar where they discussed and learned about how their
actions and words can make the internet a better place for everyone online.

One of the major aims of the session included creating a school charter of commitment to online safety which helps encourage safe, responsible and respectful online behaviours in your school community. Hopefully, it allows us to empower our school community members to interact freely online and to enjoy the benefits of this — without risking their rights, safety or wellbeing.

As Churchlands students continue to develop their Digital Citizenship learning at the beginning of each year, they understand what being a good digital citizen looks, sounds and feels like – and we want to take this opportunity to share the messages we learn at school with our community.

As parents and carers, it is important to take an active role in guiding our children to develop these critical skills so they are ready to confidently and positively communicate, now, and as they get older, where they are required to make decisions more independently and have access to more complex and potentially harmful avenues of communication. Attached below are our tips for parents to set up and guide positive technology use at home, as well as information for primary students to assist when dealing with bullying behaviour.
