1:1 Chromebook Program Information Evening

Just another reminder that our information evening featuring the team from the Cyber Safety Project for our new 1:1 Chromebook program is fast approaching.


The times for the information sessions are as follows:


Years 3/4: 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm Wednesday 17th March.


Years 5/6: 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm Wednesday 17th March.  


Both sessions will take place in the Community Hall. At the end of each session, each student along with their parent/guardian in attendance must sign off on a Chromebook Agreement before the Chromebook is received. 

Information & Communication Student Access Agreement

Last week we sent home to parents/guardians our Information & Communication Access Agreement. These will need to be read through with your child and signed by both parent and student. 


We kindly ask that these are returned to classroom teachers as soon as possible to enable students to begin using technology as part of their learning process at school. 


If you require a new copy of this agreement you can find it attached below:

The Cyber Safety Project: Parent Blog

This week I refer you back to the Cyber Safety Project Parent Blog. The post for this week talks about a game that I am sure has been played in many of our households currently or at some point over the last few years...Minecraft!


The blog talks specifically about the most current version of the game, Minecraft: Bedrock Edition.

Like many other games, it has the functionality to collaborate with others online. This blog post focuses on how parents can input settings to make sure that children are safely playing with others that they know in person from the offline world and not strangers. 


eSafety Kids from the eSafety Commissioner

Another great resource for both parents and students is the eSafety Website from the eSafety Commissioner. 


The website includes sections relevant to parents and children. There are some wonderful resources and free webinars that parents can join up to in order to learn more.

I highly recommend having a look at the kids' section of the site as it uses language that our children will understand.


Kind regards
