Cybersafety

As education further evolves into digital learning and more and more devices are released to benefit and support this, here at St Damian’s Primary school, we aim to evolve ourselves into an eSmart school.

eSmart is an initiative of The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, a national charity committed to protecting children from violence. eSmart is developed for Australian schools and is an easy-to-use, evidence-based and tested system to help schools manage cybersafety and deal with cyber-bullying and bullying.

The eSmart system provides a framework for schools to implement whole-school culture and behaviour change relevant to the smart, safe and responsible use of digital technologies.

An eSmart school is a school where the smart, safe and responsible use of information and communications technology is a cultural norm. Students, teachers and the wider school community are equipped to embrace the best these technologies can offer, while being savvy about the pitfalls.

Students are regularly involved in developing and delivering information on the smart, safe and responsible use of technologies to a variety of audiences and are taught a suite of social and emotional skills.
