The College’s recent success in being recognised as an eSmart School was achieved through the dedication and hard work of the members of the eSafety committee.
To achieve the status as an eSmart School we had to pass an external audit with The Alannah and Madeline Foundation and demonstrate the following six domains of the eSmart framework.
1. Effective school organisation
2. School plans, policies and procedures
3. A respectful and caring school community
4. Effective teacher practices
5. An eSmart curriculum
6. Partnerships with parents and local communities'
The external eSmart School auditor was very impressed with the quality and quantity of our eSmart program. The College’s eSafety Committee (composed of staff from across the College) started working toward becoming an eSmart school in January 2016 and achieved accreditation at the end of Term 1, 2017.
Redlands College thanks the ICT in Learning Coordinator Dale Lopez and the eSafety Committee members: Joel Erkkila, Adam Butler, Sarah Handreck, Rachel Pepper, Steve Lowther, Nikki Coker, Rachel Rubio, Peter Salisbury, Suz Faulkner and Josie Broughton for their hard work ensuring an eSmart culture that promotes and values the online safety, privacy and well-being of each member of our community and beyond.
