National CyberSecurity Awareness Week

CyberBullying is a fast growing epidemic that affects us all. Left unsupervised, our students can be exposed to nasty online content, as well as becoming victims of bullying and harassment. National CyberSecurity Awareness Week aims to raise awareness about protecting ourselves in this digital age.

At Coomera Anglican College, we are running an eSmart Week parallel to NCSAW 2013. Students from across the College will take part in a competition, assembly presentations, class discussions, Habits of Mind activities and a survey between the 20 May and the end of term.

Students will also delve deeper into what it means to be an eSmart school. An eSmart Schools accreditation is a formal display of rigour and accountability in the eSmart / CyberSafety space. Schools must show evidence of compliance in domains such as policy and effective school organisation. This video explains the eSmart Schools strategy.
