Facebook rules of engagement

In joining our community on Facebook, LHCS follows the Department of Education Code of Conduct and Facebook's Community Standards.


Facebook Terms and Conditions state no one under the age of 13 years should have a Facebook profile. Therefore, any comments or page fans from primary students on the LHCS page will be removed and, if warranted, users will be reported.

Tagging or naming student photos

Photos of students can only be published if the correct Department of Education permission to publish forms have been completed by the student's parents or guardian. The photo must be removed after one year of publishing unless further permission from the parent is sought.

For privacy and protection, please do not tag photos of children, and please do not name them in your comments, unless the previously mentioned permissions are sought. On rare occasions and with parental permission, students may be named by the school Facebook administration team. Tagging of parents or friends within the comment box is permitted with the understanding that all other rules of engagement are followed.


LHCS encourages interaction from participants with the understanding that the school does not endorse comments or wall postings made by visitors to the page.

We ask that visitors making comments on the page show respect for other users by ensuring discussions remain civil. Personal attacks, trolling or spam will not be tolerated.
