Celebrating Harmony Week and Taking a Strong Stand Against Bullying.
Wellbeing - Staying Safe Online and Cyberbullying
Staying safe online is paramount to maintaining wellbeing and to make sure we are being kind to one another online.
There are alarming statistics showing one in five young people in Australia are being cyberbullied. Cyberbullying is the use of technology to bully a person with the intent to hurt or intimidate them.
This can include:
It is very important to have conversations with young people about their behaviour online, what they are saying, sharing, and doing while online.
The eSafety Commissioner site has an abundance of information, webinars, and tips on how to have these conversations with your child to promote online safety.
Have a look! www.esafety.gov.au/parents
Stay safe online and encourage your child to talk through problems when they arise

Pancake Day at Ardtornish
Pancake Day is traditionally held on Shrove Tuesday, which fell on February 16 this year. At Ardtornish we merged this special day with our Harmony Week celebrations.
This year we raised an amazing $540 which will be donated to UnitingCare to help provide practical support to South Australians in need, including those without a home, people living with disabilities, vulnerable children and adults, older people, and families in crisis.
A huge thank you to all those who helped, our Pastoral Care Worker Tracey Cooper and Hope Valley Church Volunteers. We also could not have run this successful day without the help of our amazing SRC Executives, Paul Day, Mr G, Mary-Anne and our extra student, teacher and SSO helpers. Thank you!
Throughout week 8 it was inspiring to see our school community to not only raise money for a phenomenal organisation, but also remind us of being kind to one another and to respect our differences.
Well done Ardtornish, your light shone brightly! Keep up the great work.
