Welcome to our St Raphael's ICT Site for Parents!

                                              Games, Apps and Social Media

Technology is moving very fast. One day our kids are using an app, the very next day it's a completely different app. Many apps have wonderful social and educational purposes provided they are used correctly. The link above is a great resource for learning more about current apps and the positive and negative implications for each.





Let’s face it, the internet is an integral part of young people’s lives. Used responsibly, the online environment is a great place for our children to socialise and maintain friendships, be entertained, download and watch music and movies, play games, to search for information and to learn.

The ever changing nature of the internet can pose challenges for parents who wish to keep on top of their children’s technology use. While children might seem to be tech savvy, they still need a parent’s guiding hand to help make sure their online experience is positive and safe.


Common Sense is the nation's leading nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in the 21st century.


The program is a partnership between the Australian Federal Police (AFP), Microsoft Australia, Datacom and the Commonwealth Bank, and is delivered in collaboration with New South Wales Police Force, Northern Territory Police, Queensland Police Service, South Australia Police, Tasmania Police, Western Australia Police and Victoria Police as well as Neighbourhood Watch Australia.

It is Australia’s first (and only) nationally delivered crime prevention program.
