A Word on Social Media

posted 16 Feb 2017, 23:01 by Frances Agostinis   [ updated 22 Feb 2017, 01:44 ]

There has never been a time when there have been so many different ways that we are able to communicate with each other. Of course, social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp are being used increasingly by people to stay connected.

With this in mind, I feel it is important to remind all members of our wonderful school community about some important communication protocols. I raise this matter with the wellbeing of all members of our school community as my central concern.

I am aware that there are a number of Facebook pages that have been created by parents within the school. While I am aware that these pages have been created with the intention of staying connected with other members of the school community, I want to make clear that they are not official school sites. These sites should not use the school’s name, contain the school’s logo or any of the school’s branding.

The school’s website and the Skoolbag app are the sources of truth for information about the school. Hopefully, these will keep you well informed about what is happening here at Our Lady of Fatima.

Sadly, while I am sure that it would not happen intentionally, there have been far too many examples in recent times of an unfortunate or misplaced comment posted on a social media site like Facebook causing distress to a member or members of our community. With this in mind, I ask that we ensure that our obligations to engage with each other in a way that is always respectful, and acknowledges the dignity of every person, are also reflected in what we communicate online.

Yours Sincerely,

Mrs Karen Lamarre l PRINCIPAL
