Children at Hanmer Springs School are developing skills and attitudes to support them as the grow and learn to participate in society where people work, connect, communicate, collaborate, learn and share using technology and the internet. Cybersafety education is part of learning at school and teachers include this in their planning to meet the appropriate learning needs of children in their care.
The parent section on the Net Safe website is a useful starting point for parents concerned about cybersafety and ways to help their children develop skills for digital citizenship. Although children do use ipads and laptops at school to support learning, many also have significant access to the internet outside of school hours with widely varying supervision or support. The resources and information in the netsafe website may be useful for parents in the important role they have to support children to act safely and responsibly online.
