Cyber-Safety

6/05/2015

It is unfortunate that every year the school has to deal with an increasing number of cases of cyber-bullying or inappropriate behaviour conducted online.  Some of these reported incidents have occurred using illegal Facebook accounts. 

Visit the Facebook website for additional information.

Facebook requires individuals to be at least 13 years old before they can create an account.  In some jurisdictions, the age limit may be higher.  Providing false information to create an account is always a violation of our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.  This includes accounts registered on behalf of under 13 year old children by older parties.

If your underage child (child under the age of 13) has created an account on Facebook, you can show them how to delete their account.

You can report an account registered to an underage child.  We will promptly delete the account of any child under the age of 13 that is reported to us through this form.

If you have concerns about content that may be on your child’s illegal Facebook account and wish to obtain a copy to discuss with your child before the account is closed further information can be found on the parent help page.

We take issues of cyber bullying seriously at school - if an incident occurs outside of school remember unless it is reported we can not follow it up.  If you have concerns or are looking for more information you can find it on a number of valuable websites including Cybersmart.
