Advice For Parents - Momo Challenge

1st Mar 2019

Parents/Guardians -

It has come to our attention in school that a number of children are talking about the "Momo Challenge.”  We would like to take the opportunity to assure all parents that our online filtering system provided by C2k is very secure and that children should not be able to access this challenge from school. 

This is a very worrying “game" which has spread widely on social media and has been mentioned in the news. As a school we would advise all parents to be aware of what their children are accessing on online devices at home and to be especially vigilant in light of this recent viral trend. 

We have attached some information we feel will be helpful for all parents and guardians as they endeavour to protect their children from this.
