Social Media Alert

General News

Dear Parents and Carers,

I need to bring to your attention a social media site that is causing much distress to some children and young people.

Sarahah is an anonymous social media site that can be accessed through snap chat and instagram. The site promotes itself as a site that encourages honest feedback. However, the anonymity factor can encourage people to slander, bully or send threatening messages without any repercussions. It is for this reason we are encouraging students to refrain from using this site and for parents to carefully monitor their child’s social media use. This site is not recommended for children under the age of 17.


Kind Regards,
