Cybersafety

Cybersafety refers to online behaviour that is safe, appropriate and responsible.
To help prevent cybersafety incidents, students should learn how to:
  • use technology appropriately and responsibly
  • behave in ways to enhance their own safety.

Each year at Albany Hills State School, students in Years 4, 5 and 6 participate in Cybersafety Awareness talks conducted by the Department of Education Cybersafety and Reputation Management team. This team has developed programs to help primary students understand and remember what they should and shouldn't do online. This is an important part of developing students' online awareness and complements the school's BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) Program which operates in the upper school years.
