Our talented Mathematics students had the opportunity to pit their wits against students from many other schools in the state on two Friday nights in March. The Upper School team was at Trinity College on March 10 and performed well against very competitive opposition.
It is wonderful to see the new shade structure connecting the Art Block to S Block has finally been completed. Student seating has been moved to this area and the handball courts will be relocated.
Students may only login to AXNet using their own user name and password. Students should protect their user name and password details as closely as they would their bank account PIN.
Students may not use the AXNet to access inappropriate or ‘adult’ materials found on the Internet. The Network Administrators will deem what is inappropriate use and their decision is final. Students not exercising responsibility by accessing such materials will have their Internet access revoked immediately.
Students are expected to abide by the generally accepted rules of network etiquette. These include (but are not limited to) the following:
Students may not use the AXNet for the purposes of harassment of others, either within the school community or in the broader Internet community. Foul and abusive language, attempts to fill electronic mailboxes, the posting of obscene images or texts reflect poorly on the user and the school and will not be tolerated. Students should ask themselves if the information they are posting or sending would be acceptable if displayed or stated in a school assembly or published in the School Bulletin. Improper use may constitute an offence under the Commonwealth Crimes Act.
The AXNet and Internet contains vast amounts of information. Much of that information has been placed there for the free use of users. Nevertheless, law, ethics and common courtesy require that proper acknowledgment of the use of the intellectual property of others must be made. Students should treat information found electronically in the same way as information found in printed resources. Rules against plagiarism will be enforced. Many software programs reside on the ‘Net’. It is the responsibility of each user to comply with the requirements of the owners of the software regarding its acquisition and use. Applecross SHS will not tolerate the use of AXNet for the illegal copying or storing of illegally acquired software. The school will not be liable for any breach of copyright by a user.
In this case illegal use refers to deliberate attempts to damage the hardware, software or information residing on the school network or any other computer system via the Internet. Attempts to violate the integrity of private files or programs, the deliberate infecting of the network with a computer virus, attempts at hacking into any computer on the network, or other such actions are prohibited. Unauthorised access to and use of data and damage, alteration and deletion of data may constitute offences under the Criminal Code (WA) and Crimes Act (Commonwealth).
Students are prohibited from ordering, purchasing or obtaining products through the AXNet. The school will not take responsibility if the AXNet is used for this purpose.
Students are not permitted to download MP3’s, graphics, videos, .exe or other files for which they do not have a licence. Each student has limited storage space (30 Mb). Students who are at or near their upper limit of storage will have their accounts monitored. If inappropriate files are found in their directories, these will be removed without warning.
The playing of non-educational games, in particular multi-player games, is forbidden at all times.
These guidelines are provided here so that students are aware of the responsibilities they are about to acquire. In general, this requires efficient, ethical and legal utilisation of the network resources. If an AXNet user violates any of these provisions, his/her access will be terminated.
