Cybersafety in school

We all have a role to play in ensuring that students feel safe online. Queensland Children’s Hospital School is committed to fostering a safe culture in online environments for our students.

The internet, mobile phones and instant messaging provide wonderful opportunities to learn, be creative and socialise online. Unfortunately, they can also provide opportunities for inappropriate behaviour and bullying to occur. Resources are available to support parents and students, below. If you have questions or concerns about your child’s internet usage at school, please do not hesitate to contact their classroom teacher, or a member of the leadership team.
