Blogging Guidelines

Blogging is a way for the school students and teachers to share their learning and ideas with parents, school community and global community. This means that it is very important that we understand how to use the school’s blogs and the internet in a safe way.

These guidelines have been put together to promote online safety to our students when blogging.

  • Students’ first names, photos, work, videos and school name MAY be included on the blog.

  • Students’ surnames and other personal information (e.g. address, telephone number, passwords) WILL NOT be included on the blog.


When posting a comment, ensure that you follow these guidelines:

  • All comments are to be positive, encouraging and respectful.

  • When commenting on posts in a blog, consider the following – start with a greeting, include a positive comment and include a question.

  • Always write in full sentences and do not use text talk, for example, LOL and OMG

  • Students are required to post a comment with their first name ONLY and grade, for example, John 1/2AB.

  • All comments submitted will be approved by a staff member before they are included on the blog.

  • Parents who leave comments are asked to use their first name ONLY so as not to identify their child, for example, “Jane – Sally’s mum” rather than “Jane Brown – Sally’s mum”
