SOCIAL MEDIA AND CHAT GROUPS

It has been brought to my attention, as well as the SGB that some parents are writing derogatory comments about educators on Facebook and general social media chat groups.  I urge parents to refrain from such behaviour and rather deal with issues in a professional manner.  The SGB has stated that this will not be tolerated and that should any educator be brought into disrepute, the necessary legal channels will be followed.

 

 May I take this opportunity to wish everyone associated with Parkrand Primary a very fruitful and blessed term.

 

  

Kind Regards
