Our school is a registered eSmart school. An eSmart school is a school where the smart, safe and responsible use of information and communications technology is the cultural norm. Students, teachers and the wider school community are equipped to embrace the best these technologies can offer, while being savvy about the pitfalls. Being eSmart helps teachers, students and the whole school community embrace the benefits of technology and reduce our exposure to cyberspace risks such as cyberbullying, identity theft, online predation and accessing or sending inappropriate images and content.
The eSmart Framework is organised into six domains:
Effective school organisation
School plans, policies and procedures
A respectful and caring school community
Effective teacher practices
An eSmart curriculum
Partnerships with parents and local communities
eSmart is an initiative of The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, a national charity committed to protecting children from violence. Our work towards achieving eSmart status involves the whole school community, integrating cybersafety into our wellbeing policies, establishing clear procedures to deal with incidents, and delivering curriculum around the smart, safe and responsible use of technology.
