Cyber safety:

While the new-age technology has given a lot of opportunities to be well equipped with knowledge and to socialise, it has also brought in numerous problems which might be devastating. Students are advised to be safe, be alert and aware that new laws have been passed due to increase in cyber crimes. They are advised to communicate with guardians and teachers if any such situation arises. Some sites that help to make good choices to be cyber safe are:
