The discovery of a Facebook page which contains some unsavoury content involving some students at the School, as reported recently in the media, is of concern to the School as we continue to support the welfare of our students, especially in the technological world of which they are a part.
Ivanhoe Grammar School takes instances of bullying very seriously and has a number of policies in place to manage cyber-bullying. The School is actively working to reduce the instances of cyber-bullying and to educate parents as a means of supporting them and their children.
The School has launched a generic website (https://icybersafe.com/) to help parents and students to stay safe online. We would encourage all Parents to visit this site to assist in supporting their children.
The School continues to liaise with other School communities and with individuals and organisations who can provide ongoing support and education in developing a culture of cyber safety within our community.
