At Rosehill College, we understand the importance of providing a safe and secure digital environment for our students while also harnessing the vast educational resources available online. To facilitate this, each student is equipped with a school Google Apps for Education (GAFE) account, allowing seamless access to curriculum-aligned content and services. Rest assured, all user accounts are rigorously

 filtered, and email content can be scrutinised if necessary.

To ensure the responsible use of digital resources, we require all students and families to read and sign the Rosehill College Cyber Safety Agreement upon enrollment. Here’s a summary of its key provisions:

  1. Teacher-Guided Learning: Students use digital devices under the guidance of teachers during learning activities.
  2. School-Related Use: The school’s network and internet services are designated for educational purposes only.
  3. Network Permissions: Teaching staff are authorized to access student accounts for teaching and learning purposes.
  4. Responsible Usage: Students must refrain from accessing, emailing, or storing offensive or illegal material.
  5. Consequences for Misuse: Any violation of these guidelines may result in account disablement and loss of network access, with families being promptly informed.

As parents, we encourage you to actively engage in promoting cyber safety awareness. To assist you in this endeavour, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of tools and tips to protect your children online. Here’s the link.

Furthermore, we strongly recommend familiarizing yourselves with cyber safety issues through resources such as Netsafe, a New Zealand organization dedicated to educating and safeguarding against online threats. Visiting their website is highly recommended.

Your partnership in promoting cyber safety is invaluable. Together, we can ensure a secure and enriching digital learning environment for all our students.
