Cyber Safety/Cyber Bullying
The internet offers the chance to explore a virtually unlimited world without the restraints of
the 'real' world. Additionally, content on the internet is not broken into age or developmentally
appropriate areas. Without supervision and guidance, a young child can either unintentionally or purposely
find content that is disturbing, explicit or inappropriate. Subsequently, Rostrevor College, working alongside
parents/caregivers, helps facilitate the education of its students with regard to appropriate use of technology.
In partnership with SAPOL, all Year 7-9 students attended a seminar last Friday on cyber safety
and cyber bullying. Officers from the Eastern Adelaide Crime Prevention Section visited our College, running
a number of sessions including an opportunity for students to ask questions.
This is the fifth
year of our involvement with SAPOL, something we are grateful for. As part of our Pastoral Care Program,
SAPOL also delivers 'A Guide To Obtaining Your L's and P's' and 'Drugs and Alcohol' presentations to our
Year 10 and 9 students respectively.
Course Counselling (Year 11 into 12 and Year 10
It was wonderful to see so many families at the Subject Counselling Evening
on Tuesday for families of students in Years 10 and 11. We hope that the guidance offered by Counsellors
assisted you and your son with selecting appropriate subjects for 2019.
This Tuesday was the
culmination of five weeks of preparation for subject selection for 2019. We believe that this process
is particularly thorough and ensures that students have given thought to post-school options and have
considered appropriate courses of study at Year 11 and/or Year 12.
