Cyber security for students

We are committed to providing a safe, effective and respectful online learning environment for our students. All students, their families, staff members and the wider community have a responsibility to ensure they are up to date with the latest cyber security information.

There are a number of eSafety issues affecting students today, including personal information and identity protection, cyber bullying and managing increased time spent online.

Check out these list of suggestions on how to stay e-smart and some links to other helpful resources.

What can I do to stay eSafe?
