Cybersafety and Cyberbullying

19/06/2013
The safety of all students is a paramount concern for the department. This includes the management of cybersafety and cyberbullying.
 
Cyberbullying occurs when technology, such as email, mobile phones, chat rooms and social networking sites such as Facebook, are used to verbally or socially bully another person. This could include sending or posting abusive, threatening, humiliating or harassing messages, images or videos.
The department has recently updated the document Cybersafety and Cyberbullying – A Guide for Parents and Caregivers and published the document Social Media and the School Community.
 
These guides provide important information for parents and caregivers about cybersafety and cyberbullying. They suggest steps that parents and caregivers could undertake if their child is the target or is responsible for inappropriate online behaviour and tips on keeping social media use safe and positive.
