Now, Apeejay Noida is a certified ‘Cyber Smart’ school

The students and teachers of Apeejay School, Noida, received ‘Cyber Smart’ certificates for attending a workshop on cyber safety



Apeejay School, Noida, is now a certified ‘Cyber Smart School’. The certificate was granted by Atal Innovation Mission and WNS Cares Foundation (WCF), who collaborated to organise a workshop for children to teach them about cyber safety.

Students from Apeejay Noida, between classes 2 and 12, took part in the workshop that was held online. They were shown a video elaborating on the dos and don’ts with respect to cyber safety, followed by MCQ to test what they learned. On completion, each of the students was awarded a ‘Cyber Smart Student’ certificate. A similar session was conducted for the teachers by Vaibhav Bablani. They received certificates too.

Around 2,700 students completed the course–which began early November–within a span of three weeks. Says Daksh Arora, a class 11 student, “We were taught about cyber ethics and how one can prevent becoming a victim of cybercrime. We learned how to avoid cyber grooming (where an adult befriends a child online with the intention of abuse), keep our parents informed about unethical online activity, and restrict access to personal information, among other tips. Overall, the workshop was quite beneficial for all of us.”

The session was helmed by the school’s Atal Tinkering Lab (ATL) under teachers-in-charge M Kanakasabapathi and Varsha Sharma.

Apeejay Noida was awarded the ‘Cyber Smart School’ certificate on December 2, 2021.

“The institution has effectively established an environment that is digitally intelligent and cyber-secure, AI equipped and nurtures curiosity, exploration, research, and educational advancement.”
