Internet & Smartphone Safety Talk
There has been a lot in the news lately about children’s online safety. So, to help parents in this area, we are having an Internet Safety talk in our school on Thursday, February 22nd at 7:00 pm.
This talk will be given by an expert on Internet safety and cyberbullying, who has given this talk to many parents in schools all around the country. We hope that they will help you have a better understanding of what may be going on in your child’s online life.
Some recent statistics have revealed to us the following:
- 58% of children have their own smartphone.
- 38% do not have their own phone but they have other devices such as tablets or WiFi-enabled MP3 players.
- All of these children say that they were are online at least once a day.
- Gaming with people around the world, chatting and exchanging photos with friends and family, commenting on social media posts and watching videos were some of the things the children say they do.
- Interestingly, Facebook was not really mentioned as a social media app of choice, but Snapchat and Instagram were.
- Most children say that their accounts are private but many were not sure.

The sensory room provides a calm space for children who can become overwhelmed by the busyness of the classroom. This ability to take a break allows the child to return to the class calm and centred. The room currently features artificial grass coverings with acrylic mirror, felt material, and a padded sun; a floor-to-ceiling colour-changing lava lamp; a wheel projector which projects water onto the floor, and a projector/light package with bluetooth music speaker. Funding permitting, the school intends to add a never-ending tunnel of lights, bubble mirror and a tactile pad along the padded wall, a hammock and squeeze machine, a sensory ball pool, and weighted blankets.
The sensory room was initially developed for children with additional needs but children throughout the school have enjoyed it. Children who may be a little anxious or unsettled can use it to take a break, to calm themselves and to help them cope with the stresses they have been dealing with. We’re very grateful that we can offer this very important facility to the children of RMDS
