Ecole St. Patrick High School would like to extend an invitation to all Yellowknife parents to attend a session on cyber bullying on Tuesday February 11 at 7 PM in the High School Gymnasium. This session will feature guest speaker, Parry Aftab, a US lawyer, child advocate and expert in all aspects of cyber law, best practices, cyber bullying and cyber harassment, cybercrime and privacy. She is also a risk-management and best practices consultant and advisor to the leaders of the Internet and digital technology industries.
Parry authored the first Internet safety book in the world, A Parents Guide to the Internet. She has been featured in Biography Magazine, in Chris Hansen's book, To Catch a Predator (named after his award-winning Dateline series of the same name.) Parry is a leader worldwide in cyber safety and privacy and is in demand as a keynote speaker on these and Internet best practices. Parry is heralded as the leading expert in cybercrime in the United States.
We encourage all parents, teachers and interested members in the community to come and engage with the speaker on this very crucial, current issue. The Internet is a wonderful tool but we must help our children use it safely and responsibly. Admission is free and there will be time for a question and answer period.
Special thanks to St Pats for sharing this important informaiton with us, and for the invitation!
