At school, students must agree to follow the Appropriate Use on School Network guidelines in relation to Internet Use. Internet access is provided by the department’s Managed Internet Service (MIS) and provides students with:
- Content-filtered Internet access
- Virus-filtered email
- School website hosting
MIS provides the means to filter students’ access to web pages from a global level; controlled by the department and from a school level when appropriate. Personal devices are set up to automatically connect to the MIS, as required of all devices (iPads, laptops, desktops) used by staff and students at school. This is a safe environment where access is blocked if users attempt to connect to prohibited sites. Teachers discuss safe practices when using the internet and students are encouraged to report any inappropriate content. Students will be encouraged to turn off Wi-Fi in class when not required for a task, thus restricting access to the internet.
