Parents’ Webinar- Online Safety 12th May 2022

As part of Tech Week in ACETNS (9/5/22 – 13/5/22), the children will also be participating in online safety workshops facilitated by Barnardos. The SPHE programme in school and the school’s Digital Strategy both recognise the great importance of developing the children’s awareness and skills to become responsible and safe users of online technology, both in school and at home. We adults also need to raise our own awareness and skills in the area of Online Safety in order to protect and support our children. We encourage all parents to avail of this great opportunity and register for the webinar next week. 

An email has been sent out to parents with a link to the webinar. If you have not received this please contact the school.
