You may have heard on the news about the online Momo Challenge.

The Momo Challenge is a virus spread though messaging platforms such as Whatsapp, Snapchat, Instagram or Facebook Messenger where someone will receive or be sent a number purporting to be from Momo. If they respond to this, they will be set challenges which must be photo evidenced. The challenges become increasingly dangerous and can encourage self-harm or harming others and Momo will use blackmail and intimidation such as threats to family or exposing the photos, to keep individuals participating in the challenge.

Please be vigilant with your child using social media at home.

If you have any concerns, please contact the school and speak to Diane Keary or Stella McGovern.
