Social Media Information Evening for Parents

16th March 2016

This was our first information evening for parents, which was held on 15th March and dealt with the issues surrounding the increasing use of social media by teenagers.

Parents helped themselves to tea and coffee, and provided with a presentation into the risks that were associated with the use of social media today. We then broke out into groups which then looked at a range of videos which described to parents some tips on identifying and dealing with potential problems in using Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. Finally we rounded up the evening by discussing how to classify the applications so that they can be evaluated quickly and easily.

This successful evening was also attended by students whom discussed their own experiences and special thanks goes to Clifford Beak, Joshua Hughes, Ellis Humpheryes, Xander Reay and Matthew King, all of which provided a valuable insight into the ways in which teenagers use social media applications.
