We’ve been fortunate to get funding from our Parents Association to bring Drugs 101, Social Media 101 and Sex 101 to Firbank and, to be honest, I can’t think of a better use of the Association’s money. It cements the fact that we are raising our children together – parents and the school. We have received nothing but positive feedback from our parents and the benefits for our students are knowing that their parents are learning about issues that matter.
The Social Media 101 parent guide is a valuable resource for our parents. We now live in a society that is rich with information where we can find everything we need to know online. However, parents often face the dilemma of filtering through information and having to work hard to find reliable sources. Social Media 101 is a well-balanced, easy-to-read, carefully-collected guide that has provided information and support to many of our families.
Sex 101: “Having the need-to-know information condensed into a handy book – with information sourced from credible authorities – is invaluable.”
