Cyber Wellness


Cyber Wellness refers to the positive well-being of internet users. It involves an understanding of the norms of appropriate, responsible behaviour with regard to technology use as well as knowledge, skills, values and attitudes on how to protect oneself and other internet users in the cyber world. It looks into the positive physical and psychosocial well-being of students in their use of mobile and internet technologies.

Goals of Cyber Wellness

The Cyber Wellness curriculum at Jurong West Secondary School aims at advocating a safer and more considerate online environment for everyone. While promoting proper netiquette among the students, the Cyber Wellness team also makes the students aware of the ill-effects of cyber-bullying and internet addiction. Furthermore, we aim to provide the students with research opportunities through various programmes, thus inculcating the habit of using the internet in a more meaningful way.
