eSafetyWomen
eSafetyWomen is designed to empower Australian women to take control of their online experiences. This initiative of the Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner forms part of the Australian Government’s Women’s Safety Package to Stop the Violence.

All Australians deserve to be safe online. However, one in four Australian women has experienced emotional abuse from a current or former partner, and one in six Australian women has experienced violence from a current or former partner.* In most cases this abuse and violence includes the use of technology to abuse, control and stalk.**

The eSafetyWomen resources aim to help women manage technology risks and abuse by giving women the tools they need to be confident when online.

Safe access to technology is crucial for women so they can stay connected to their family and friends, engage with the world, and get information and support. eSafetyWomen helps women stay connected safely.

Year 1 Excursion to Melbourne Museum

IMG_2316During Term 2 the Inquiry topic is ‘Lets Turn Back Time’.  Students have been learning how families differ from one another in their class and about the past, present and future.

On Tuesday the 3rd of May students visited the Melbourne Museum to support their learning further. Students participated in a class led by the staff at the Museum called ‘My Grandmother’s Toybox’. They were shown how toys have changed over time and had the opportunity to touch these toys including a very old Marngrook football that was made out of possum skin.

Students also had the chance to look at different animals, walk through an old Melbourne style home and saw large bone structures from whales and dinosaurs. The students had a fantastic day and learnt lots of interesting facts. Below are some photos of the excursion.
