Our College Motto, Striving for Truth through Love, guides our collective efforts in enabling our young women to thrive in recognising the truth of God’s love and their own call to seek truth and love, in themselves and in their relationship with others. These values guide our expectation of the way members of the school community behave in both the physical and online environments.
As highlighted in the Ave Maria College Child Safety and Wellbeing Policy, we are committed to:
Child Safety Standard 9: Child Safety in Physical and Online Environments recognises that school environments extend beyond the school grounds, and we are committed to ensuring child safety is a feature of all interactions in both the physical and online environments. Our School ICT Acceptable Usage Policy outlines the expected use of ICT and the expected behaviour of members of the school community in the online environment. This policy should be read in conjunction with the Child Safety and Wellbeing Policy to ensure that all communications with young people take into consideration any risk of harm to the young person. At Ave Maria College we follow protocols to ensure the safety of young people in all environments, including the online environment. These protocols allow us to identify and mitigate risks in these environments without compromising a young person’s right to privacy, access to information, social connections and learning opportunities.
