WhatsApp Guidelines for Parents
A MESSAGE FROM THE PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION
Class WhatsApp groups are a very useful and efficient way of communicating to the whole class. The aim of using WhatsApp is to send messages to the entire group, which are relevant to school.
The messages in the class WhatsApp groups come from parents in their personal capacity or are sent on behalf of the Parents’ Association. The School neither sends nor monitors messages on WhatsApp.
The Parents’ Association would appreciate if parents would note the following guidelines when using class WhatsApp groups.
- The group should never be used as a platform to air views/grievances regarding a teacher, child or parent in the class or school.
- The group is not a political platform for airing opinions on current affairs.
- The group should not be used for private conversations with anyone else using the group.
We thank you for your understanding in this matter.
