Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools Offering Social Media Safety Presentations


“Through my experience as a principal working with young adults, I see the importance of empowering students and parents when it comes to social media, helping them learn to be safe and set limits to their use. The risks associated with smartphones, technology and social media continue to increase and in school settings, we see this every day,” said Principal Gary Gylander of St. Francis of Assisi Middle School.

“I am thrilled to hear Paul’s message so that we can continue to learn and grow together as a community, ensuring that our students are safe and that we as a community know how to protect them. .”

The event is co-sponsored by the Smiles Thru Lindsey Foundation and the Red Deer Catholic Education Foundation.

Rick and Cindy More of the Smiles Thru Lindsey Foundation say they know all too well the importance of keeping young people safe online.

“On September 20, 2015, our daughter Lindsey lost her battle with depression; a disease she hid from us in high school. When we searched for answers, one of our findings attributed social media as contributors to her depression. As parents, it is imperative that we understand the dangers surrounding our children around social media and the importance of our involvement,” the Mores said.

“Paul Davis will open your eyes to a world of technology that is not fully understood. We pray that no parent suffers the loss that we do. Thank you to everyone who attends this presentation.

The RDCRS says Davis’ presentations aim for audiences to walk away with a wealth of knowledge and empowerment for their respective age.

The evening event is free; however, attendees are encouraged to register on Eventbrite.
