Cyberbullying

Remember for all life threatening matters you need to call police on 000 and get help from an adult.

Balancing screen time

eSports

2020 Anglican Schools and QUT will host the Queensland High Schools Esports League!

 

We have come a long way since the 2017 eSafety Commissioner’s Conference “Online Safety On the Edge” where, it was  identified that esports is rapidly expanding. Now the average age of a gamer is 33 years old. 

1. You need to take notice of game classifications. 

2. Be careful of how you are interacting online, and who you are interacting with. People may not be who they say they are. Do not give out personal details. 

3. Take breaks, be careful of what you eat and avoid sugary drinks! 

4. Manage your screen time no gaming at least 2 hours before your usual sleep time!
