Cyberwellness

The Townsville Cyberwellness programme is guided by the Cyberwellness Framework.

Principles

The two principles, “ Respect for Self and Others ” and “ Safe and Responsible Use ” when adhered to will anchor students’
well-being in cyberspace as they will then be able to make careful and well-considered decisions.

Respect for Self and Others

Students need to

  • uphold their own dignity when online (e.g. avoid surfing inappropriate sites and participating in illegal online activities)
  • respect others (e.g. avoid using the work of others without permission and publishing undesirable materials that hurt others).

Safe and Responsible Use

  Students need to

  • have an understanding of the risks of harmful and illegal online behaviours, and learn how to protect themselves as well as to avoid dangers they may encounter online.
  • be able to evaluate the consequences of their decisions/behaviours while online and make responsible choices to protect themselves and the community (e.g. not spending excessive amount of time chatting or playing games online, and reporting victims of cyberbullying to a trusted adult/authority).

At Townsville, Cyberwellness values are inculcated through the ICT-enriched lessons, assembly programmes and teachable
moments.
