Student Wellbeing

Student Wellbeing

At St Thomas' we endeavour to provide a safe and supportive environment that contributes to positive learning outcomes.

Cybersafety is the safe and responsible use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).  Children are increasingly using technology in their day-to-day lives, therefore Cybersafety education and safety protocols are imperative.

At St Thomas' we

  • maintain a positive approach about the many benefits brought by technologies. 
  • have strategies in place to minimise and manage risks.
  • have a Cybersafety program which aims to teach students about how to be safe online and how to be responsible digital citizens.
  • provide information to parents about Cybersafety.

We source information through the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) and this includes student, staff and parent education.  For further information visit the ACMA Cybersmart website: http://www.cybersmart.gov.au

St Thomas' is also part of the eSmart initiative, which is supported by the Alannah and Madeline Foundation. eSmart is a framework approach to help improve cybersafety and wellbeing in Australian schools.  For further information visit the eSmart website: http://www.amf.org.au
