The internet and the online world can be an amazing resource and tool for communication, information and enjoyment. However, it also has inherent risks that can be of huge concern. At Forster Park children are regularly taught about how to stay safe and behave online and we want to ensure that parents have that same opportunity.
This page contains the school's policies, online user agreements and useful websites and information about how to keep your children safe online. In addition, please look out for any Online Safety up dates from school.
