The amount of time people spend on social media is constantly increasing. Teens now spend up to nine hours a day on social platforms, while 30% of all time spent online is now allocated to social media interaction. And the majority of that time is on mobile - 60% of social media time spent is facilitated by a mobile device.
Having missed this last year due to prior commitments, I went along to this years Internet Safety "parents evening". I was surprised to say the least, that aside from Mike and myself, your PTA co-chairs, there were only THREE other parents in attendance.
The information you missed related to social media, cyber-bullying and grooming. You will have the opportunity to speak with PC Thomas when she attends some of the other parents evenings in the near future.
I've added a new website section containing some of the information shared on the evening, along with important website links. Please try to take a look at them.
News and views from the PTA. We're a small committee of people trying to fund-raise for the school, so your children can have a new book, a new bench outside, or even a party, without breaking the bank.
