Cyberbullying/ Internet Safety Talk

Dr. Maureen Griffin has been invited to come to Scoil Niocláis on Monday March 4th 2013. During the day she will meet with all students in fifth and sixth classes. After school she will meet with all staff members. Parents are invited to a talk given by Dr. Griffin on the evening of March 4th 2013. The time will be confirmed closer to the date, but the talk will more than likely begin at approximately 7.30 pm.

Maureen is the founder of Internet Safety for Schools Ireland  and in the last 18 months, she has visited over 120 schools (primary & post primary) across Ireland speaking with students, staff, BOM members and parents regarding issues around social media, cyber-bullying and internet and mobile phone safety. Maureen has also delivered presentations around social media for the HSE, Brothers of Charity, NEPS and the NAPD.

All parents are cordially invited to attend the evening session in the school hall. Further details to follow.
