Electronic communication systems such as social networks, blogs, mobile phones, and email have become increasingly important in our daily lives and often have important benefits but, as we all know, there are also risks to be considered.

Access to the Internet can take place almost anywhere at anytime and it is important that students, teachers, and parents are aware of the risks and know how to use modern technologies appropriately and are able to discuss the issues in school, at home, and between friends, and what actions to take when something goes wrong.

Below you will find weblinks, documents and information about online safety so you can decide what is right for your family when using the Internet and associated technologies.
