Use our new Digital Citizenship toolkit to empower your child to understand how their online behaviour affects themselves and others.
You and your child can find information on:
how to ‘be positive’ by understanding online behaviour and its effect
'be smart’ by thinking critically and being digitally aware
'be safe’ by protecting your security, privacy and wellbeing.
A toolkit to empower you and your child
You can find articles and videos to equip and empower your child to minimise the risks and maximise the opportunities in our digital future.
We’ve partnered with leading researchers to produce a curated toolkit – aligned to the curriculum – which teachers and you can share with the young people in your lives.
Guide your child through important concepts such as:
managing privacy settings in social media
avoiding scams and hoaxes
understanding the law when it comes to online speech
Internet banking, shopping online and much more.
Keep your child safe and happy online
Visit and bookmark the Digital Citizenship website. We’ll continue to add articles and resources to ensure the best possible tools are available to help you guide your child to be positive, smart and safe online.
We acknowledge the Wangal people of the Eora Nation, who are the Traditional Custodians of the land along the southern shore of the Parramatta River.
We pay our respects to the Elders, both past and present, and to those of the future, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and the hopes of Aboriginal Australia.
We must always remember that under the concrete and the asphalt upon which Newington P.S. was built, this land is, was and always will be, traditional Aboriginal land.
