The importance of the Internet to school and education is growing daily. Access to this resource provides opportunities to greatly enhance the educational programs offered to students. The Internet is a means of bringing the world around us into the students’ classrooms.

To avoid misuse or exposure to inappropriate material by students, the use of the Internet by students is governed by strict guidelines. Mindarie Primary School’s Internet Policy has been designed to incorporate the ‘Internet Usage, Policy and Guidelines’ from the Department of Education of Western Australia and also the ideals of our school.

The purpose of this policy is to provide a guidance for teachers, students and parents alike. We urge all parents to read the policy, discuss it with their children and to approach the school if they wish to have any part of the document clarified.
