Student Logins - Google Accounts

Student Logins - Personal Google Accounts
Student online learning at school is managed under our school domain.  Students are protected when using their designated school gmail account by our N4L filtering system. As per our school cybersafety agreement, this is the only account students are to use for their learning at school. 
Should students abuse this account by using it for purposes other than learning, they will lose access to their account for a period of time (up to a week in the first instance) as a consequence.
It has come to our attention that a number of our students, including younger students, have created their own google accounts/logins as a way around this. Because these do not operate under the school’s domain, we are unable to monitor their online activity as we are able to do when the children are using their school login.
Please discuss with your child if they have an alternate account. It is our recommendation that any child with a personal account has an adult at home monitoring it.
Students found logging in with alternate accounts at school are also in breach of the cybersafety agreement, and will also lose their login privileges as a consequences. We are being vigilant with this as our primary concern is for the safety of our students.

Saturday Rugby!!!

Hi everyone I was lucky enough to go and watch Matua and Dylan play against each other today at Bruce Pulman park. They were pretty evenly matched teams and at the end the score was 6-7. I won't spoil the surprise and tell you who won (I'm sure one of the boys will be keen to tell you, several times who it was)!!

Thanks boys for inviting me to come and support you both with your games, you were awesomely fierce out there! Keep it up!

Room 18 wants to be Cyber Bully Free!!!

Last week Room 18 talked about the impact cyber bullying can have on students long term and we all realise it is a subject that needs to be taken seriously and we all have a part to play to make sure we stay safe. We hope we have educated you a little more on how to either stay cyber safe or get help if ever needed.

Cyber Bullying

If you are being cyber bullied this is what you should do:
First-tell an adult
Second-delete it
Third-Play with different friends untill it gets sorted out.

Cyber bullying can really hurt someone and make them do not really good things like, Cut off all their hair and skip school.When people are getting bullied they often do not tell anyone.That is not really good but understandable because of the thought of getting more hurt or embarrass.You should’nt tell any of your friends or family to gung up on them because that is just more bullying.If you are a bullied you should stop now because you are going to get found out sometime and that would not be good.Even though you are making the person that your cyber bullying less conferdent and weak in the end the vectom always wins.

To avoid going on inappropriate or bad websites I would do these few things.To avoid going on bad websites don’t go on any websites your real life or fake friends tell you to go on.Also to avoid this don’t click on anything that you don’t know.

To avoid spam I would do these few things.If you get to many of the same messages over and over again tell an adult about it and they would sort it out.Also to avoid this you can block the person if you know how or delete the messages and switch the gadget you were using off.

How to be safe online

If an inappropriate website or a ad comes up immediately delete it or shut it down and then go to your parent or an adult. Then let them deal with it.  

Also if somebody is texting you bad messages don’t say anything nasty back otherwise you will make it worse. Try delete it or go to the adults and let them sort it out.

Sometimes a picture comes up like you can win this price by doing these things, don’t do it or email any of your personal details. Otherwise someone could actually hack into your account, or find where you live.

Some People have google hangouts and sometimes things get out of control, like you get bullied and what is happening at home happens at school. Tell your teacher or your parent.

If somebody is texting you mean messages over and over and over again delete the hangouts that you with them. Then if they still keeps adding you back go to your parent immediately, because they are not that scary in person. They just sound like they are when they are on devices. Or you can ask them to stop bullying you and kill them with kindness

Bully free writing!
1.  If you are at home and you use your school account to do inappropriate things there will be trouble at school . If you see inappropriate things like ‘you can win a xbox 360’ and you click on it.. that is bad. These things are called pop ups and they try to trick people into clicking on them and it can wreck your computer.  You can go on websites like math games and learning games and more but do not go on inappropriate websites.

Cyberbullying can get you into trouble: If you need help... then do this

1.you can be bullyed on goggle hangouts and people your trying to hangout with might go to another person and say mean stuff to you and spread rumours which is not nice or fair

2. Some people can be blackmailing and saying mean things like your pretty stink
And telling some of your secrets

3. If they don't stop tell an adult

4. Tell the teacher
