Hi everyone,

I'm a principal of a small semi-rural school. Our school has a Facebook page to communicate with parents/grandparents and the wider community. While I regularly check and make sure that none of our students have 'joined' our page (and we have a spiel on our page about the fact the page is for our adult school community and we don't expect to find our students on there), I noticed recently that one of our Y2 students (6 yrs old!!!) had 'liked' a picture.

Since seeing this I have removed the 'like' but am now worried this student has a Facebook page which is open for all to see. I'm wanting to put something into our school newsletter for parents around children and Facebook pages and was just wondering what others have done. 

Thanks in advance for your comments :)
