Macquarie College is a registered eSmart school and has shown a commitment to be a leader in this region.
eSmart is an initiative of The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, a national charity committed to protecting children from violence. This foundation has developed guided framework that Macquarie College has used to manage cybersafety and wellbeing.
eSmart has helped teachers, students and the whole school community embrace the benefits of technology and has reduced our students exposure to cyberspace risks such as cyberbullying, identity theft, online sexual predation and accessing or sending inappropriate images and content.
Macquarie College is committed to providing a safe and enriched learning environment that includes the use of technology. We are proud of our eSmart status and work diligently to maintain this status each year. Part of our maintenance involves educating the whole school community by providing professional workshops and current speakers to deliver quality in depth education. Macquarie College regularly updates cybersafety practices and integrates these into our wellbeing policies, establishing clear procedures to deal with incidents, and delivering curriculum around the smart, safe and responsible use of technology.
