Notices to Parents
We have been alerted to a social media app children are downloading called "Oovoo". This allows an individual with the app to search for anyone else who has the app even if they do not know them. For example, a search for 'Mel' brings up the contact details of anyone called Mel who also has the app. Police are very concerned because undesirable adults are using it as a means of contacting children/young people. This has already happened to a young female student in another school.
We advise that you make your child aware of the risk associated with this app and take steps to discourage children from using it.
