The internet is invaluable in today's high-tech world for both information and as a tool for communication. It is however, vitally important that certain protocols are followed to ensure personal safety is protected at all times. Internet Safety is taught to our children in school as part of the curriculum and is reinforced whenever the children access any information technology equipment. The use of the internet in school is strictly filtered and the tightest security is in place at all times.
