Cyber Safety Parent Workshop
Last night , over 70 parents and teachers attended the YSafe Cyber Safety Parent workshop. The feedback from parents has been very positive. We have decided that this will be an annual event for all parents to attend. 

Jordan Foster, psychologist and director of YSafe, discussed many relevant social media, gaming and internet topics. She also discussed issues around technology use for children ranging from 4 years old to the early teens. We would like to thank all the parent who attended this informative evening and appreciate the support in keeping the students at Sacred Heart safe online. Parents who were unable to attend, we strongly encourage you to attend our next Cyber safety Parent workshop, so we can share these strategies.

Jordan urged all parents to remember the ABC of cyber safety management and to attempt at least one of the strategies, or all three to be most effective.

2017 Year 4 MacBook WorkShop

Thank you, to all the Year 4 parents who joined us in learning more about the Sacred Heart 1:1 Laptop Program, on Tuesday 7th March.
We spent the evening discussing several topics, brought to our attention, from the parent survey, distributed before the workshop.
After discussing the requirements for the mandated Western Australian Curriculum and the cyber safety programs implemented at Sacred Heart, we worked together in a hands-on Google Slides session.
The parents participated in a mock classroom experience, where they experienced first hand, how the MacBook laptop is integrated into the curriculum and classroom practices.
We appreciated the enthusiasm the parents displayed, in completing the task set for them.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact your teacher or the leadership team.
Thank you to TechTree's Mr Derek Stewart and Mr Nick Stanley for sharing their tech expertise with the parents.

We look forward to offering the Parents at Sacred Heart Primary School,  Highgate, the opportunity to attend A Cyber Safety Parent Workshop, in the coming terms.
