We listened to the experts
We discussed, shared our experiences and asked questions
We Had A Great Time @ The Hub!
It was a beautiful Saturday morning @ The Hub. 40 parents attended the very first WNS Social Media Forum. Whilst they enjoyed a light breakfast served by La Cascina Restaurant, they listened, shared, learned and left empowered to tackle some of the challenges presented by today's digital world.
We have uploaded the forum handouts on this page, as well as additional resources for our parents ease of reference. We plan to continue this conversation within our parent community with the view to getting all WNS families on the same page when it comes to the importance of instilling good digital citizenship practices at home - it saves time, reputations and even lives!

Below are the forum handouts, plus extra resource material for your reference. You may want to print out the posters and place them somewhere you and your family can see them. Whatever you do, start the conversation on social media and internet access with you family now!
“Our kids are growing up in a selfie society with technology in their back pocket, on their wrists, and just about every room in the house. Media and technology are amazing tools. But when our children are just a click away from scary and damaging stuff, we have to be proactive in allowing them access. Anything else is just simply irresponsible.”
Kristen Welch – Author of “Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World”
