 What's happening at St Benedict's

 

 

Attendance Mattershttp://www.stbenedicts.qld.edu.au/StayInformed/Pages/Attendance Matters.aspxAttendance Matters<p>Regular school attendance helps children develop the skills needed to access the world of work and other opportunities, learn the importance of punctuality and routine and make and keep friendships. If students miss the basic skills in the early years of school, they will often experience difficulties later on. It has been shown that irregular attendance in the junior primary and primary years often leads to the development of poor attendance at secondary school. This year at St Benedict's we are launching <em>Operation 96%. </em>This means we are aiming for an average attendance across the school of 96%. This equates to a tiny little bit over one student per day away from each of our 25 classes. Each week we will update families on our progress ​towards our goal.<br><br></p>
Cyber Safetyhttp://www.stbenedicts.qld.edu.au/StayInformed/Pages/Cyber Safety.aspxCyber Safety<p class="ms-rteElement-P"><strong>​​​​​</strong>This term we welcomed Brett Lee to our combined St Benedict's Primary and College Communities to present student, teacher and parent sessions aimed at skilling all members of our community to navigate and manage the online world safely and responsibly. Brett was clear that he is NOT anti-internet and spoke of the great benefits to having a family life that is balanced, with clear boundaries when accessing the online world.</p><p class="ms-rteElement-P">Brett comes, not with an educational background, but with a law-enforcement background and helps him provide a unique perspective and relay facts about some of the dangers posed when children go online. Brett was a Queensland Police Officer for 22 years, 16 of which as a detective in the field of Child Exploitation. Brett has been personally involved with the interview, location, arrest and prosecution of hundreds of online criminals and predators (89 of which were adult men in the Brisbane area). He also had the opportunity to work overseas with the FBI and Homeland Security in the United States of America. Brett shared 5 key messages for students for safe internet use, and these are the same messages for all students Brett works with (Yrs P – 12).</p><p>If you would like to view further information from Brett, including books, articles and resources he has written, please go to his website at <a href="http://www.internetsafeeducation.com/" target="_blank"><span lang="en-US" style="text-decoration:underline;">www.internetsafeeducation.com</span></a><br><br></p>
