Online Safety B-12

Young people today have access to a wide variety of websites, applications and online games via the internet and as a result are accessible to many millions of people worldwide which often results in personal information being available. There are identified dangers to all young people using the internet because of this, such as, young people being exposed to inappropriate content, cyber-bullying and harassment, exchange of inappropriate images and identity theft. Young people are often not aware that their words and or photos, which may have been intended for a small audience, sometimes find their way to a larger one, often with both unexpected and undesirable consequences.

A number of resources and links to external websites have been provided for your further reference.

Please, should you have any concerns regarding your young person's activities online, feel free to contact the College Wellbeing team on 8261 2733.
