Cyberwellness

Objective: To develop the child's instinct to protect himself and empower him to take responsibility for his own wellness in cyberspace.
Synopsis: The Cyber Wellness Programme in West View Primary School encourages our pupils to adopt the 'Sense-Think-Act' approach when they are online. We want to teach our pupils how they can become a safe and responsible user online by conducting Cyber Wellness lessons and activities carried out by our Cyber Warriors and Teachers.

 

Safer Internet Day 2017

Safer Internet Week at West View was launched on 7th February 2017. Our school celebrated Safer Internet Week with a series of enriching activities. The aim of the activities is to create the awareness in making the internet a safer and better place for all.  With the theme for this year’s Safer Internet “Be the Change, Unite for a Better Internet”, the ICT department had come up with various programmes to engage the pupils throughout the week.

During assembly programme, the message of “BuddyNotBully” was brought across to the pupils. In addition, there was a roadshow held during recess in line with the assembly programme for pupils to find out more information on the impacts of cyber bullying.

A colouring competition was held for the lower primary pupils while the upper primary pupils are invited to embark on a design competition to create a cyber wellness mascot or logo for the school.

The P4 and P5 pupils were also given the opportunity to go on the ‘Lab on Wheels’ bus where they get to experience authentic robotics programming.

Continuing from “Share A Smile” activity which received great response from the whole school, teachers and pupils participated in the “Unity” activity where they will take a class photo showing unity. The activity promotes teacher-pupil interaction, but also encourages everyone to be positive online and play a part for a better internet. On the last day of the week, there were recess activities for the pupils to increase their awareness of internet safety as well as to consolidate their learning from the week. 





Cyber Wellness Assembly Programme

The P4 and P5 pupils were invited to participate in the Young Scientist: I’m A Young I.T. Whiz in Term 2 where they had the chance to win prizes for Early Birds and Best Works. The prize winners were announced during the assembly programme on 26 September 2016. 

Ogawa Tamaki (4 Fascinating) and Mohanty Stuti Prangya (5 Fascinating) also shared their meaningful takeaways that they gained from participating in the activity this year. 

With the increased number of accidents happening while people use their phones when walking, it has become a concern. Thus, pupils were reminded on Cyber Safety (online and offline) after the prize presentation.   

Afterall, Safety (online or offline) is Everyone’s Responsibility!
