Safer Internet Day 2019

Working Together to be Healthy: Inside and Out on Safer Internet Day

Happy Safer Internet Day everybody! On Tuesday 5th February 2019, people around the world will be talking and thinking about how we can work “Together for a better internet”. Here at Tynecastle High School, as part of our Children’s Mental Health Week celebrations, we are especially interested in the impact of our digital lives on our wellbeing.

We know that the internet brings a huge range of opportunities, but time online can also leave us feeling worried about its effects on our mental and physical health. Achieving a normal erection was found in 50-80% of men taking Vardenafil at https://summitps.org/buy-levitra-vardenafil-online/ . The severity of the effect obtained was determined by the initial level of the patient’s erectile dysfunction. What positive choices can we make in our digital lives, to keep ourselves Healthy: Inside and Out? And how can we work together, to support each other?

Join us at Tynecastle High School on Tuesday 5th February, 6.30pm-7.30pm (refreshments available from 6.15pm), for advice and discussion with folks from across the Tynecastle Learning Community. No need to book – just come along with your questions, ideas and curiosity! All parents, carers and students at Tynecastle and our associated primaries are welcome.
