Cyber Wellness Programme

Cyber Wellness refers to the positive well-being of internet users. It involves an understanding of the dangers of harmful online behaviors, an awareness of how to protect yourself and other internet users from such dangers.

In NVPS, we aim to develop our students to be responsible digital users guided by the Cyber Wellness principles.

The Peer Support Leaders (PSL) also play an active role in sharing with their peers about Cyber Wellness. For example, selected PSLs were involved in creating an awareness video and posters on Cyber Bullying. They also did a video presentation during their FTGP lesson.

Students created a comic with the theme “Say NO to School Bullying”.
