Cyber Wellness Connect
MOE’s Cyber Wellness education develops our children’s instinct to protect themselves and empowers them to take responsibility for their well-being in cyberspace. The focus of Cyber Wellness is about helping students to become responsible digital learners.
Helping Your Child Stay Safe Online
Cyberthreats are malicious attempts to damage or disrupt a computer network or system. Examples of cyberthreats include malware, phishing, hacking and spamming. These programmes can be used for criminal actions and/or damage devices.

Developing Your Child To Be Positive Peer Influence Online
Peer influence is the effect an individual can have on their friends to change their attitudes values or behaviours. Positive peer influence is one of MOE’s Cyber Wellness principles. It encourages our students to:
• Be a positive role model online (e.g. share healthy and positive content, harness the affordances of technology to do good)
• Advocate positive online behaviour (e.g. stand up for their peers online, and report cases of cyber bullying to a trusted adult/authority)
