The Year 4 team at Cranbourne East PS have established these rules regarding the use of our blog:
■ Students will only post and comment using their first name – no surnames.
■ Posts and comments are checked by a teacher before they are published on the blog. Posts and comments need to be written in proper English and include correct spelling and punctuation. No SMS\text speak.
■ Post are not to include personal details (addresses, phone numbers and other family information), rude or attacking comments and language.
■ All students must have parental permission to have their work and photo published online (through the Cranbourne East ICT Acceptable Use Agreements)
■ Parents wanting to comment are asked to only use their first name to avoid identifying their child.
