Cybersmart Outreach Program

As part of its Cybersmart Outreach program, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), delivers free internet safety awareness presentations for parents, teachers and students. These presentations provide valuable information about the risks confronting children online, and offer tools and tips to help make their internet experiences safe and positive.

St Patrick’s have been lucky enough to secure the Cybersmart Outreach team to come to the College on June 1 where they will present to staff, students and parents. The student presentation will take place in the Gym after lunch and the staff presentation will take place after school.

The parent presentation will take place at 7:00 pm in the Old Boys Pavilion so please mark that in your calendar.

The Cybersmart Internet safety presentations cover topics including:

  • the ways children use the internet and emerging technologies

  • potential risks for children online, such as cyber bullying, illegal content, inappropriate contact, identity theft, grooming and predatory activity

  • tips to help children stay safe online.

The presentations are thorough, non-technical and will be conducted by an accredited Cybersmart trainer. This is a fantastic opportunity for the St Patrick’s community to hear form the experts on all issues regarding to cyber safety.

To register your attendance, please contact Glenis Kydd via email at as soon as possible. Enrolments will also be accepted on the night.

All are welcome and I look forward to seeing you there.

Director of ICT
