Cyber safety

Our school takes cyber-safety seriously. Students are explicitly taught how to protect themselves online. 

Digital citizenship education

At Canterbury Boys High School, students participate in a variety of learning experiences that support safe internet use. These include:

  • key curriculum programs where digital citizenship is explicitly taught, for example PDHPE and TAS mandatory lessons.
  • NSW Department of Education programs embedded into school programs such as the digital citizenship website.
  • initiatives led by the school's student support officer include anti-bullying initiatives and cyber safety lessons.
  • the Optus digital thumbprint program where students participate in a variety of workshops on digital insight (in Year 8), digital impact (Years 9 and 10) and digital ambition (Years 11 and 12). Our teacher librarian coordinates program delivery. More information can be found at the digital thumbprint website.
  • Police in Partnerships programs run at the school around cyber safety. This includes presentations by the Police Youth Liaison Officer (PYLO) for all year groups. The PYLO work with the school in providing additional support to students and/or their parent/carers.

Digital citizenship information for parents and carers

Schools have the responsibility to encourage students to use the internet in a positive and safe way. This includes offering advice to parents to help them monitor their child's access and usage in the home.

We encourage parents and carers to improve their knowledge in this area. We recommend the following websites:
