Notes on Student Wellbeing

By Dearne Bassett, Assistant Principal Student Wellbeing

Bus Update:
This is to advise that School Routes 421, 575, 580, 630, 802, 804, 808 will see diversions in place from Monday 5 March 2018. Effective Saturday 3 March 2018, Platform 1 Hibberson Street will close to allow for continued works within the Gungahlin Place precinct.

As a result of Hibberson Street closing, Platform 1 will relocate to Gozzard Street (opposite the Raiders Club). Platform 2 will remain temporarily on Gozzard Street. On the completion of works the Gungahlin Bus Station will move to its permanent location at Gungahlin Place.
Commencing: Monday 5 March 2018 (for school services) until further notice.

Bike Riders:
Unfortunately, SFX has experienced some bikes taken from the school over the last 12 months. We are looking at relocating the bike racks away from near the trees. We are asking that students park their bike up in front of the staff carpark (opposite the building). Make sure you have a secure lock and you take your helmet with you and place in your locker.

ThinkUKnow Presentation: 3rd April 2018: 6.00pm
ThinkUKnow Australia is a cyber safety education program that educates parents, carers and teachers of how people are using technology, the challenges they may face online, and how to help them overcome these in a safe and ethical way. ThinkUKnow Australia is a partnership between the Australian Federal Police, Microsoft Australia, Datacom and the Commonwealth Bank. The program is delivered in collaboration with policing partners New South Wales Police Force, Northern Territory Police, Queensland Police, South Australia Police, Tasmania Police, Western AustraliaPolice, as well as Neighbourhood Watch Australasia.

The presentation will be delivered by a local law enforcement member and an industry volunteer. The presentation covers issues relating to children and young peoples’ privacy and security online, their relationships with other users and their online reputation. It provides insight into the devices young people are using, as well as the popular websites, apps and social networking sites they’re accessing.

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to learn more about young people

and the online environment, and how you can help them to be safe and responsible users of technology.
