Internet Safety

A parent has brought to our attention a cyber safety issue which has resurfaced nationally since last year. I’m resending the link below (it was shared in an early 2018 newsletter), which takes you to a circular from the Ministry of Education with advice for parents regarding internet safety for all school age children: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5RYdoko1C6Bak1tRE9RajMyd2xvYkpzODlJMl9DTUxXZ3dz/view?usp=sharing.

For generalised cyber safety guidelines for parents I’m also re-sharing the Net Safe link here: www.netsafe.org.nz/online-safety-for-parents/

For advice specific to the recent online alert - from Sticks and Stones: https://www.forbes.com/sites/andyrobertson/2019/02/27/dont-panic-what-parents-really-need-to-know-about-momo-challenge/?fbclid=IwAR3efx7VpKYvgos1O93XNXJ1FdBbdzo-dBB8d4f32yPtEcg-PjDZOGfw_2U#45fafada3a4b
