Cyber Safety Week

Date: February 12, 2018

Suncoast is committed to educating students in Cyber Safety. This year, Week 5 (19-23 February) is sanctioned Cyber Safety Week. Numerous events are planned including special assemblies, Sphero Grand Prix and a visit to Primary Chapel by Detective Anthony Green.

No doubt we are familiar with the benefits of modern technology and most likely are aware of the grim reality of misuse. News stories often detail the shocking stories of calculated attacks on individuals with the most recent story of Molly Everett emphasising the need for continued education in Cyber Safety. Suncoast has a long history of teaching students about appropriate and inappropriate use of technology. The main focus for this year’s program is Cyber Bullying and students will have an opportunity to connect with Cyber Safety specialists and participate in Australia’s Class Act 50 Task Challenge.

We invite the Suncoast community to enjoy our scheduled activities that promote online safety, health and well being during Cyber Safety Week. On Wednesday 21 February, parents, teachers and senior students are invited to attend LinkedIn and Twitter workshops in the Library from 1:00pm to 1:20pm. Furthermore, students from Years 7-12 are welcome to enjoy free coffee or tea with special guests and counsellors in the Library on Friday 23 February to share their experiences or concerns about online safety. Students in Primary School and Middle School will enjoy the incredible Sphero Grand Prix.

With 75% of adolescents owning a mobile phone, education and appropriate use of agile technology is fundamental to health and well being. Incredibly, teens send approximately 50 text messages each day with 66% of teens ‘send/receive’ exchange totalling 100 texts a day or 3,000 per month. Their ability to engage in rapid conversation is unrivalled and the immediate exchange of texts provides digital intoxication and a sense of power. So much to the point that users can become keyboard warriors, posting hurtful words and damaging comments.

With Cyber-bullying affecting 1 in 8 young Australians, it is essential that continued education is provided to our young adults. Planned workshops, lessons, presentations and activities will provide needed education and help students become responsible digital citizens.

If you seek to know more about LinkedIn or Twitter, be sure to attend the Suncoast community workshops in the Library on Wednesday 21 February from 1:00pm to 1:20pm. Furthermore, if you require information regarding Cyber Bullying, please download the Parent Information Booklet by Wangle Family Insites, visit Common Sense Media, contact your Heads of School or alternatively contact Mr Adam King via email aking@suncoastcc.qld.edu.au.
