Internet Usage

 

St Monica’s Primary School is committed to providing a technology rich environment for our students. As our computer network improves, we see the inclusion of the computer as a valuable tool in every Key Learning Area of the curriculum.

 

The Internet provides a powerful tool for students to research and discover information from around the globe. Our goal in providing this service is to promote and encourage educational excellence by facilitating resource sharing, innovation and communication. The Internet allows our students to connect with students from other nations and states and to discover more about the world in which we live. While access to the Internet can provide enormous educational benefits, there are potential risks of obtaining material that is objectionable, controversial or inappropriate for students. Student use will be fully supervised to ensure that material accessed is both suitable and useful for their needs.
