Cybersafety sessions

6/02/2015
On February 5 and 6, Hilliard State School welcomed Steph and Sam from Cybersafety Reputation Management team from Department Education Training and Employment. They ran sessions for our Year 2 - 6 students around Cybersafety and being safe on the Internet.

At Hilliard SS, we are proactive with regards to teaching our students about Cyberbullying and safe online activity, and we are reactive if we have it occur on our school site, or using an Education Queensland medium e.g. EQ email or Learning Place.

There are Rules and Regulations for the different types of popular social media, most of which do not allow access for children under the age of 13. Here are quotes from the terms of service for two of the current popular social media channels:
