Dear Parents,

Coming up next week is our parent workshop, “Your child and technology.” If there is one major event you should prioritise this academic year this is it!

Technology is now central to the lives of children, it is how they live, communicate, form friendships, break up, find out about the world (truth is relative) build their image, learn, play and make meaning.

This should concern you, social media and digital media is changing at an exponential rate, not necessarily for the better. You need to know how to protect your child from this wonderful yet terrifying medium as you would protect your child from anything dangerous that can come into your home.

Leaving technology in the hands of children unchecked, unmonitored and unfiltered is like leaving your children home alone with the doors wide open.

Please, mark this workshop in your calendar and come along to find out about your child and technology. Sign up is here.

Kind regards



Neill O’Reilly
