E-Safety is taught as a discrete topic within the ICT program, across all years for total of 6 lessons each year. Topics range from setting out the risks involved and basic understanding of how to stay safe, for the lower years, to more advanced e-safety such as legal issues and software optimising to years 10 and 11. Below is a table that outlines the e-safety delivery across the year within ICT sessions.
