eSmart is an initiative of the Alannah & Madeline Foundation, a national charity committed to protecting children from violence. They provide a guiding framework for schools to help manage cybersafety and student wellbeing.
eSmart helps teachers, students and the whole school community embrace the benefits of technology while working to reduce exposure to cyberspace risks such as cyberbullying, identity theft, online predation and accessing or sending inappropriate images and content.
St. Anne's is proud to be recognised as an eSmart school.
Parents should be aware that the Australian Government has created the Office of the eSafety Commissioner which is committed to helping young people have safe, positive experiences online and encouraging behavioural change, where a generation of Australian children act responsibly online—just as they would offline.
They provide online safety education for Australian children and young people, a complaints service for young Australians who experience serious cyberbullying, and address illegal online content through the Online Content Scheme.
