Year 8 Parents - ySafe workshop with Jordan Foster

The world of social media & technology is fast becoming the centre of our children's universe. It can be a challenging task for parents to stay on top of the dangers of social media and technology, while monitoring their child's online behaviour and finding balance.

We are offering a workshop for Year 8 parents to learn more about managing children's technology use, including an introduction into the most popular social media platforms and practical tips for keeping kids safe online. We will also cover information on setting boundaries around technology, online behaviour management, and tools for managing technology both in and outside of the home.

If you've ever struggled with getting your kids off their games and into bed, worried about knowing what your child is accessing online, or felt concerned that your child was spending too much time in the digital world, this workshop is for you!

Please register for this event by following the link provided. This is an important school event and we encourage all Year 8 parents to attend. The parent workshop is on Tuesday 20 June 6.30pm - 8.00pm in MacKellar Hall.

Year 8 students will also be attending a presentation run by Jordan Foster during the school day on Friday 16 June. We hope that by hosting both the boys' presentation and the parent workshop, the opportunity for conversation at home about the expectations and understandings surrounding the use of social media and technology will occur.
