Overview and Purpose

Cyber Wellness (CW) in Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) is important as it focuses on the well-being of our pupils as they navigate cyberspace, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to harness the power of ICT for positive purposes, maintain a positive presence in cyberspace, and be safe and responsible users of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).

Approach and Learning Experience

Our approach to CW is guided by the CW Principles by the Ministry of Education:

The three principles, ‘Respect for Self and Others’, ‘Safe and Responsible Use’ and ‘Positive Peer Influence’ when adhered to will anchor a child’s well-being in cyberspace as he will then be able to make careful and well-considered decisions.

CW Education at Catholic High School is delivered across various learning platforms:

  1. CW lessons via Form Teacher Guidance Period (FTGP);
  2. School-wide programmes (e.g. CW assembly talks, CW morning sharing, Peer Support Leaders’ CW Workshop and CW activities); and
  3. CW topics that are included in subjects such as English and Mother Tongue Languages.
