St. Davids to Get “Face” Time with Social Media Expert

St. Davids Public School students and parents will be getting a crash course in internet safety on Wednesday, March 6, when recognized social media authority Paul Davis presents at the Niagara-on-the-Lake school. Davis, who has presented to more than 100,000 students and parents, will support families with strategies to effectively protect their privacy and promote positive experiences online using social media.

“From Facebook to Twitter, You Tube and many others, social media has become an increasingly popular way for students to communicate, collaborate and share information with one another,” says Tammy Chilcott, Principal. “As more and more students take advantage of these online tools, it is important that they understand how to do so responsibly and safely.”

“We’re looking forward to this session, which will also provide parents with support, tools and tips to effectively manage their own presence on social media and become more aware of their children’s online activities,” adds Chilcott.

The presentation is scheduled to take place from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening. This is a free evening, a light supper will be provided and child care will be provided for children aged 4 – 12 years.
