This is a newly formed office that supports children in learning about eSafety and making official complaints about cyberbullying.
A new law introduced this year (Enhancing Online Safety for Children Act 2015) allows children suffering from serious cyberbullying to contact the Office of the Children's eSafety Commissioner to have content removed if social media companies do not remove offensive content after it has been reported to them.
This is a great step towards helping guide children and young people toward safe, enjoyable experiences online that keep them safe, happy and connected.
The goal is to create an environment in which cyberbullying is truly unacceptable. Here at BWPS, we take digital citizenship very seriously and we will be working in conjunction with the Office of the Children's eSafety Commissioner to ensure our students are respectful and responsible online citizens who know how to keep themselves, and others, safe online.
You can report cyberbullying, request content removal form social media sites and find lots of useful information about this new support system HERE.
