“Keeping Up With Your Kids Online”

After a very successful talk in 2013 at St Rose Catholic School at Collaroy, Leonie Smith “The Cyber Safety Lady” has been asked to return to St Rose to talk again with parents about cyber safety and how to develop a positive approach to their child’s online world.

Date: Tuesday 25th February 2014 7pm – 9pm St Rose Hall, 8 Rose Ave Collaroy Plateau 2097 RSVP srcp@dbb.catholic.edu.au

As a parent…
‘The step by step succinct instructions on how to change settings for various websites and devices was invaluable. My son had about 150 apps that didn’t clearly spell out the age restrictions and when I changed the settings on his iPod, he went from 150 to 5!’

As a principal….
‘Having Leonie speak to the parents at my school, reinforced how important it was for the parents to be diligent in understanding what their children were accessing, and how this impacted on their child’s social interactions at school’
