 Cyber Safety Workshop 18th July

Our long awaited Cyber Safety Parent Workshop will be held next Tuesday 18th of July at 7pm in our church. Brett Lee, a former Federal Police Officer, will be coming to deliver an informative presentation on what we need to be aware of as parents about helping to keep our children safe while using the internet. There is no need to RSVP, just turn up. The presentation will finish at 8:30pm. Earlier in the day Brett will be running workshops with our Year 5 and 6 students, as well as running a workshop with our staff after school. Brett’s presentations are part of our commitment to safe use of the internet. I would strongly encourage you to attend the evening presentation.

In the spirit of Child Protection, it is a timely reminder for all parents to consider the CyberSafety of their children. As a school, we work tirelessly to ensure that our students remain safe whilst accessing resources online. At home, there are many tips and tricks for how you too can promote and ensure the safety of your child while they are online.

The following links from the “Think U Know” website (designed specifically to promote CyberSafety in children and promoted by the Daniel Morcombe Foundation) is a great resource providing information about how to secure different operating systems AND different applications on iPads and iPhones.

I strongly suggest that you check the safety of your children’s devices:

The Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner has also provided significant information aimed at promoting online safety for our children. The “iParent” section provides information about reducing risks online for children and for promoting safe internet use. It also provides some great resources about how to address specific cyber issues such as cyberbullying, balancing online time, managing access to inappropriate, offensive or illegal content, social networking and online gaming.

Again, I strongly suggest that you peruse these resources, and that you regularly take time to monitor and review what your children are accessing online:
