Weeroona College Bendigo – Current eSmart Status

The Weeroona College eSmart policy is available for download by clicking HERE

Cyberbullying, sexual predation, identity theft and accessing and sending inappropriate images and content are some of the real cybersafety risks facing young people today.

To reduce our students’ exposure to these risks, and to help the whole College community embrace the benefits of technology, Weeroona College Bendigo has become involved in eSmart.

Funded in Victoria by the State Government, eSmart is an initiative of The Alannah and Madeline Foundation. It was developed by the RMIT School of Education, with the input of many other cybersafety and education experts.

Weeroona College Bendigo has successfully completed the first stage of accreditation and is now moving through the implementation stage of the initiative. This involves the further development of existing policies, establishing clear procedures to deal with incidents as they arise and delivering curriculum around the smart, safe and responsible use of technology.

Parent and student will be sought as these new initiatives are developed and implemented. Further information is available from Mrs Helen Tuohey, Assistant Principal, at the College.
