Social Media – Message from Principal

Please supervise your children when they are online. Even when they are using educational sites, remember the internet is a portal to the world wide web.

Dear Parents, Please be aware that no child in Primary School should be on SOCIAL MEDIA. If your child has access to the internet, please know what sites they are visiting and what apps they are using. I would encourage you to look at the Webwise website, where the latest apps are explained in detail. You will also find advice on internet safety topics, including cyber bullying and social media.

The reason I am sending this email is that it has been brought to my attention that a number of our pupils are on social media and putting up inappropriate comments. I would appreciate if you could talk to your child about internet etiquette and internet safety. Your child’s safety is our priority.

I appreciate you taking the time to read this.

Kind regards,

Máire Costello
