CYBER WELLNESS

What is Cyber Wellness?


Cyber Wellness (CW) refers to the positive well-being of internet users.

The focus of CW is to help our students to become responsible digital learners by understanding online behaviours and being aware of how to protect themselves in the online space.

Students should also be positive peer influence and harness the power of technology for the good of the community. 

MOE’s Cyber Wellness Framework

3 principles of Cyber Wellness

These 3 main principles will guide our students’ decision-making and anchor their well-being:

       Respect for self and others.

       Safe and responsible use.

       Positive peer influence.

Through CW lessons, our student will be taught to:

       Sense – Identify possible online risks and protect themselves.

       Think – Analyse, evaluate and reflect on a situation based on the CW principles.

       Act – Take actions to keep safe and be a positive influence online.

PCPS Cyber Wellness


In order to equip students with lifelong social-emotional competencies and sound values to become safe and responsible digital learners, our school’s CW curriculum ties in closely with the CCE curriculum to bring about a holistic CW education.

Our Programmes and Initiatives


Programmes and initiatives are carefully curated according to CW themes, keeping in mind the current affairs in our cyber world.

A.        Class Talks

In Term 1, each level will go through a Cyber Wellness class talk to have a better understanding of the main CW theme of the level.

B.        SLS Lessons in Term 2 and Term 4

As a follow-up to the class talk, students will recap and be engaged in activities related to the CW theme. This allows students to learn and apply their skills in scenario-based questions and Cyber Wellness-related games.

C.        Cyber Wellness Student Ambassadors (CWSAs)

CWSAs are role models who actively influence their peers to create a safe and kind online community. They do this through:

  • Guiding their peers on how to behave in the digital world
  • Championing school-wide CW outreach efforts

CWSAs are given opportunities to attend workshops and be part of CW projects to create awareness about CW in school.
