Cyber wellness refers to the positive well-being of Internet
users. It involves an understanding of online behaviour and awareness of how to
protect oneself in cyber space. Pupils attend cyber wellness lessons during
their Form Teacher Guidance Period (FTGP) and our cyber wellness ambassadors
take on roles on advocating the values of cyber wellness.
In Teck Ghee Primary School, two cyber wellness ambassadors
are selected from each class (Primary 3 to Primary 6).
Cyber wellness ambassadors attend a training workshop in
Term 1 to learn how to manage the ICT resources in the classroom and pick up
values on cyber wellness.
These ambassadors are given opportunities to present to all
the other pupils in the school during pre-assembly sessions. Their
presentations include the following issues:
Proper Usage of Mobile Phones / Whatsapp
Cyber Bullying / Spyware / Malware
Cyber Security (Spam, Phishing)
ambassadors are also given duties during recess to educate their peers using
pupil-created games like “Cyberpoly” and “Snake & Ladder”.
Through playing the games, pupils in Teck Ghee Primary can learn about cyber
wellness issues and the appropriate actions to take should they encounter these
issues in real life.
