Diggers Rest Primary School is committed to the eSmart Schools Program. An initiative by the Alannah and Madeline Foundation, eSmart is a whole-school approach designed to educate, track, monitor and prevent cybersafety and cyberbullying.

The eSmart Schools program assists us by providing:

  • an effective road map to guide schools in developing a sustainable whole-school approach to cybersafety, cyberbullying and bullying

  • direct web access to the best cybersafety resources from Australia and throughout the world

  • a flexible system that our school can adapt for our own specific needs

  • a comprehensive gap analysis tool acknowledging existing school cybersafety practices

  • the framework to create a positive school culture and protect children from cyber-risks

  • a record to track and record eSmart activities and progress

  • resources, policies and guidelines are adapted for all states, territories and education systems – saving time and reducing duplication, and

  • ongoing training and support.
