Scams Awareness Week

Last week was national Scams Awareness Week 2020, and this represents a great opportunity to remind your staff, teachers and students of the heightened risk of online scams.
 
"Scamwatch has reported a 55 per cent increase in reports involving loss of personal information this year compared with the same period in 2019, totalling more than 24 000 reports and over $22 million in losses."
 
You can find out more about Scams Awareness Week 2020 on the Australian Government ScamWatch website including practical tips and tricks for avoiding scams.

The 25 Teacher Professional Learning Field Trip Learning Journals, organised in the Broken Bay school clusters of the Northern Beaches, North Shore and Central Coast, support teacher professional learning that integrates the Field Work component of the History K-10 Syllabus and the use of ICT (iPads and Learning Journals).
 
The DBB Aboriginal Seasonal Calendar was developed as a resource to support the curriculum demands of the NSW Geography & Science & Technology K-6 Syllabii. This resource provides examples of how the movement of animals and changes to plants/trees signalled the change of seasons in Broken Bay.
 
The DBB History K-10 Teacher Resource provides teachers with sources of evidence around Aboriginal Life across the three geographic clusters of Broken Bay. This includes middens, cave art, engravings, tools and weapons, artefacts, stone arrangements, waterholes and soaks and quarry sites.

The Broken Bay Acknowledgement of Countries is a multimedia resources co-constructed by Aboriginal Education Officers and our Aboriginal Students. This Acknowledgement respectfully includes all Aboriginal Nations that had a connection to Broken Bay – Guringai, Darug, Awabakal and Darkinjung. It is suitable to be used at Masses, Graduations, School Assemblies and the like.
 
The DBB Creation Story Resource was developed in relation to the demands of the NSW History & Geography Syllabii and the Broken Bay Religious Education Curriculum so far as it relates to the Stage 2 and Stage 3 Modules: Land, People, Spirit.
 
The related NSW Syllabus resources include custom made Google Maps that trace Arthur Phillip’s 1st Inland Expedition in Australia, Arthur Phillip’s exploration of the Broken Bay and Central Coast, as well as European / Aboriginal Conflicts in the history of Broken Bay. This resource also includes links to the Journals of Arthur Phillip and William Bradley as well as a number of DBB created Australian History 360 VR Resources.
