Cyber Wellness Programme
In Punggol Secondary, in addition to 4 hours of curriculum time for the explicit delivery of the Cyber Wellness lessons by Form Teachers, programmes are planned with accordance to MOE’s 3-step process of ‘Sense, Think and Act’.
This is to develop our students’ astuteness in cyber space and positive actions in using technologies ethically and responsibly.
Cyber Wellness Ambassadors (21st Century “Cyberspace”君子)
2014 marks the first time our school promotes Cyber Wellness through peer education. Students were appointed as Cyber Wellness Ambassadors in every class. This is an effort by our school to provide an external platform to complement and support the Cyber Wellness education as part of our values curriculum.
Every month, the appointed Cyber Wellness Ambassadors will present and discuss different topics like Cyberbullying, Computer Security and Copyright issues with their classmates during Form Teacher time and through an online Cyber Wellness Google Site (http://tinyurl.com/psscwa) a brainchild of our Star Ambassadors. The Cyber Wellness Ambassadors are reminded to be a positive influence and a role model to their peers in the cyberspace, a 21st Century “Cyberspace”君子.
“As a Cyber Wellness Ambassador, I try to tell my friends that it is wrong to bully students online. Although they do not always listen to me, I still try my best to convince and educate them."

At the end of the year, they will represent us at the annual Cyber Wellness Student Ambassadors’ Conference (CWSAC), in a bid to achieve recognition for their school efforts.
“As a Star Ambassador, I want to create a competition to get all my peers to work together for a Cyber Wellness effort. I am glad to be given this opportunity.”
