An information evening on the topic of Internet Safety will take place in Sligo Education Centre (on the grounds of IT Sligo) on Monday the 27th of February at 7:30pm. This workshop, delivered by your local National Parents Council Sligo County Branch, focuses on strategies for improving communication between parents and children and negotiating boundaries relating to their internet use. Parents will get to hear young people talk about how they use the internet, why it is attractive to them and get an insight into children's main worries when online, such as cyber bullying. Parents will be introduced to strategies to help their children be responsible, effective and safer internet users.
Sligo Education Centre in conjunction with Sligo County Childcare and Sligo Leader is hoping to run the Incredible Years Parent Training Programme after Christmas if there is enough demand. If you are interested, please contact the school and we will send you an expression of interest form to fill in. If you would like to find out more about the programme, please follow the link below:
