第一福利导航 Schools Office Maitland-Newcastle Logo

The 第一福利导航 Schools Office aims to ensure students at each of our 第一福利导航and their parents or carers are well informed about cybersafety so they have the best possible outcomes from using the internet.

In addition to the education provided at 第一福利导航about cyber-safety and workshops and seminars offered to parents, the CSO recommends utilising the resources of the Australian Government eSafety Commissioner.听The CSO acknowledges that threats to our safety, human dignity, and relationships with others and with God can manifest themselves within the digitally connected world of the 21st Century. As such, the eSafety Commissioner website听aims to ensure parents are well informed when it comes to the internet and have access to user-friendly information, links and resources from one central point.

The site also aims to inform all parents on ways they can be proactive and cyber savvy whilst also ensuring their children are educated to use the internet safely and are aware of the consequences if they don鈥檛.

Information is provided on everything from social media, unwelcome websites, stranger danger, cyberbullying and financial exploitation to unlawful use and useful contacts.听The site not only has preventative measures and ideas for parents to implement at home, but also has information which aims to assist parents in dealing with unexpected circumstances, such as a child being the victim of cyber-bullying, or in fact, the cyber bully!

The internet and Facebook are integral to our lives today but parents needn't be frightened if they educate themselves and their children about how to use听the internet, social networking and all mobile internet devices, especially mobile phones, in听a safe and sensible way.听听

There are risks听but it is like learning to drive, if we learn the rules of the road then听we reduce the risk of hurting ourselves and others.
