Online Safety For Your Children

If you have any concerns about your child's online safety please come along to our parent evening hosted by Netsafe on Thursday at 7pm in the Staff Room.
This is even more important now that we have many students with their own BYOD Chromebook.

To encourage as many families as possible to attend we will be giving away a free ice block to every student in the class with the most families at the meeting!
