Concerns over usage of Social Media app OoVoo

Concern

OoVoo is a high quality video chat application similar to Facetime or Skype. It allows people to connect with up to 12 friends at one time and video chat or have a voice call. You can download it on an iPad, iTouch, iPhone, Android phone, etc. And you must be 13 years old to set up an account, which doesn’t slow anyone down who can subtract 13 years from 2015.

What are the concerns for your child using ooVoo? As with all social media, the main concern is who can search out your child easily. Please click on the ‘read more’ link below to see more detailed advice on how best to manage your child’s account.

XL Foodbank volunteering

XL foodbank

On Tuesday last week, the S2 XL group returned to the Trinity centre to volunteer at the Foodbank. The group were involved in bagging and sorting the foods, handing out hot drinks and chatting with members of the local community who were accessing the Foodbank. The group were a real credit to Forrester High School and this experience was valuable as they completed their active citizenship unit.
