Today is Safer Internet Day.
Here are some tips for staying safe online:
It’s great to share things online with your friends. Part of the fun of sharing videos, images and other content, is that lots of people can view and respond. Remember that what you share with your friends may also be viewed by others who you don’t know. They may also be able to look at it for years to come. Everything you post adds up to make your digital footprint and, once it’s online, it could be there forever. So think before you post.

•Keep your personal details private. Use an appropriate nickname instead of your real name. Ask your parents before giving anyone on the internet your name, address, phone number or any other personal details.
•Don’t share your username or password with anyone.
•Think before you hit send or post. Once posted, it can be difficult to remove content.
•Don’t post anything you don’t want others to know or find out about—or that you wouldn’t say to them face to face.
•Remember that private images and videos you send to friends or post on a social networking site may be passed on to others and uploaded to public sites.
•Be respectful of other people’s content that you post or share. For example, a photo that your friend took is their property, not yours. You should post it online only if you have their permission and make a note about where you got it from.

Fr. Ryan visited the school today to bless our throats for the Feast of St. Blaise. When we were having our throats blessed he said the following words, “Through the intercession of St Blaise, Bishop and Martyr, may God deliver you from every disease of the throat and from every other illness. In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.”
