Facebook and Twitter are great ways to communicate school news, photos, videos and upcoming events and we hope by using social media we will further improve communications between the school and our community.
We also view this as a way of further engaging you in your children’s daily learning more effectively.
In order for us to enter the world of social media responsibly, we request your permission to use your child’s image on Facebook and Twitter in the same way we currently do on the school’s website or in the local press.
