Parents Association Update 10 March 2016


Internet Safety Training


Training takes place on Monday March 14th at 7pm. The overall objective of the session is to provide parents with enough information and skills so that they will be able to engage in their child's online life. This programme looks at how children use the internet and will give a practical demonstration of the technologies and the websites young people are using. Parents will be introduced to strategies to help their children be responsible, effective and safer Internet users. This session also looks at cyber bullying.  All welcome.
