2019 Safer Internet Day

Tuesday the 5th of February is Safer Internet Day. Safer Internet Day raises awareness about the positive role of digital technology and explores ways we can all contribute to creating a better, safer internet. Coordinated by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner in Australia and celebrated in over 130 countries, this year’s Safer Internet Day theme is ‘Together for a better internet’. Parents are encouraged to get involved and support our young people in developing the critical skills required to successfully navigate the online world. These skills take time to develop but they can help us in all areas of life - online and off. We like to call them the 4Rs…Respect - I treat myself and others the way I like to be treated Responsibility - I am accountable for my actions and I take a stand when I feel something is wrong Reasoning - I question what is real Resilience - I get back up from tough situationsHelp spread the word about creating a safer, more positive internet—start a conversation with your child about which of the 4Rs of online safety is most important to them and how can they help build a better internet for everyone.

2018 Principal Morning Tea Semester 2

Last Friday, along with the other members of the Leadership Team, Ms. Byrnes had the pleasure of serving 150 of our students at the Principal’s Morning Tea. These students achieved a commendable effort grade for all Key Learning Areas in their Semester 2 report. As she explained to the students they may not have achieved an “A” grade but they had tried their best and put in effort into all subject areas throughout the semester and as a principal that is what she is most proud of. The students enjoyed the experience of being served by the leadership team and they certainly enjoyed serving them!
