I have just returned from the Helena Romanes School this evening where the deputy head, Mr Potter and other staff as well as PC MacNamara have given us a presentation on the dangers of the internet for our children.

The slide show and three hard hitting videos had previously been presented to the year 7 children in a bid to educate the children as to the danger of grooming on line and via a mobile telephone.

I had thought I was clued up on keeping my children safe on line - I am not!

Mr Potter and the other presenters have given me real solutions to some of the problems our children can encounter on the public chat facilities such as Bebo and Facebook.

I hope the school will give this presentation again to all the other year group parents such was it's worth. Thank you Helena Romanes staff and PC MacNamara.
