MacKillop Tackles Cybersafety with eSmart

18 March 2012 by

MacKillop College has registered to take part in eSmart, a guiding framework for schools to manage cybersafety and wellbeing. Funded by the Victorian Government, eSmart is an initiative of The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, a national charity committed to protecting children from violence.  eSmart will help teachers, students and the whole MacKillop community embrace the benefits of technology and reduce our exposure to cyberspace risks such as cyber bullying, identity theft, online sexual predation and accessing or sending inappropriate images and content.

Our work towards achieving eSmart status will involve the whole school community – for example, we will be further integrating cybersafety into our wellbeing policies, continuing to establish clear procedures to deal with incidents, and delivering curriculum around the smart, safe and responsible use of technology.

We’ll regularly update you on our progress through this newsletter. More information is also available at www.esmart.org.au.
