I have no connection whatsoever with St Sampson's School but I would fully support the school in taking this initiative. Some businesses are very quick to criticise schools but very few actually offer support without wanting something in return. As for all those people who managed quite well without computers when they were at school, I would say people managed perfectly well with horses before cars were invented. Why have a telephone when pigeons can do the same job? It has become something of a cliche to say this, but most children currently at school will spend their careers doing jobs which currently do not exist. The more we equip them to be technologically aware the better and this includes the use of social networking. On the other hand, maybe we should be turning out saggar makers' bottom knockers?
