eSmart Schools
 


Welcome to a fresh new year!
We hope you all had a restful and rejuvenating break.


Congratulations to all schools participating in eSmart. In case you missed it, Sunrise ran a week long anti bullying campaign in which our eSmart Framework was named as world class best practice.
Watch what they had to say

You are among more than 2200 eSmart schools across Australia, who are implementing our evidence based program and we look forward to continuing to work with you again.

SUPPORT
Connect Workshops
In 2017, the Foundation launched its own expert speaker bureau, called ‘Connect’ designed to help upskill communities in relation to cyber safety, bullying and the impact violence has on children and young people.

The workshops complement the work schools currently undertake as an eSmart School. More than 360 sessions were delivered in 2017 and we are delighted to announce there are solid bookings for 2018.

Find out more about Connect how it can assist with your eSmart journey. 

Here's some feedback we have received:
“This workshop was delivered to teachers by someone who has worked as a teacher. I found she understood our workload (not just telling us she understood - BUT actually understanding). The stories she shared along the way were relevant to us. Easy to listen to the speaker and I certainly learnt a lot.”


“Both the workshops and presenter were excellent and met the needs of our parent group”
